The J39 Portraits Christian Vennerstrøm

Christian Vennerstrøm, architect and co-founder of Bahraini Danish, arranges his office space with books and pieces linked to ideas and thoughts. For him, the area is about bringing ideas to the table and decorating a tiny corner of the world just as he likes it.

The J39 chairs belong, and I will probably never part with them.

Christian Vennerstrøm

“What attracts me to being an architect is how I can shape the world and put things to the test. My work is broad, and I love drawing everything from houses to furniture and different objects.

I need a place where I can be with my ideas and turn my head inside out. Open and airy, and ideally, a place where I can arrange everything just as I think everything should be. I have realised that it is a life-long project to create the environment I imagine in my head. Also, I share this office with other architects; therefore, it is still democratic.

I bought my J39 chairs when the School of Architecture changed fixtures and sold off their old furniture. They remind me of the school to which I am still attached as a teacher, so I have sat on these chairs for countless lectures and now as a critic. They remind me how complex it is to be a person who creates: the best and the most challenging part.

The J39 chairs belong, and I will probably never part with them."
