floral arrangements take center stage at tableau, the latest flower shop in copenhagen by studio david thulstrup. located in a 19th century building, the concept store is designed like an atmospheric gallery space, where flora is is displayed like art on custom-made architectural podiums made of single materials such as terrazzo, glass bricks and polished metal profiles.

in keeping with tableau’s theatrical theme, david thulstrup stripped the building’s walls and ceilings to expose the raw concrete, old wallpaper layers and textures of the interior, which he contrasted with bright blue vinyl floors. displayed alongside bespoke design and art pieces in the 168 m² space, flowers are showcased like installations sitting on top of six graphic plinths, each made out of a different material: reflective glass, terrazzo, stone, polished metal, transparent glass bricks, and perforated metal sheets.

a cylindrical, eye-catching structure at the end of the store doubles as a ‘growth rack’ for pot plants and a light sculpture. its neon tubes, paired with the custom designed lighting fixtures of the ceiling, radiate a white light that shifts in color, illuminating the interior with an atmospheric, rich glow. the contrast between raw materials and the softness of flowers accentuates their preciousness, shifting focus towards a unique experience.
