out-siders spread light over Karen Blixen's square

Karen Blixen's square is to be an active meeting place for citizens, 2000 employees and 16000 students at the University of Copenhagen. The ambition that the more than 19000 square meter square should create coherence across the campus and tie the area together with the rest of the city

Karen Blixens square is an impressive prestige project within architecture, design and innovative solutions in Denmark and in out-siders, we are incredibly proud to have played a significant role in the project. In collaboration with HSM Industri, we have designed unique bicycle racks that offer as many as 2100 new parking spaces at Karen Blixens square.

The illuminated bicycle bollards in the square are specially designed for the square, but the inspiration comes from the racks at Nørreport Station, where the light source “Point Sun” is also installed. We are proud to be part of another major project in Copenhagen’s cityscape

The bicycle racks are not only functional, they are also part of an urban landscape in the square. They are located under hilltops that create small elevations and give a unique, visual aesthetic to the square with space for 1500 bicycles under cover and another 600 under the open sky
