Beyond Baltic birch: The home and studio/showroom of Frama director Niels Stroyer Christophersen merges artful decay with modernity. Christophersen describes his mission this way: "I want to create a dialog between two opposite poles, the classical and the contemporary." Working with a group of artists and designers, Frama produces a line of lighting and goods for the home and designs edgy commercial and residential spaces. The  Frama studio, located in the historic Nyboder neighborhood, occupies a pharmacy dating back to the 1800s, original woodwork and architectural elements included. Christophersen's living quarters, a suite of rooms located off the studio, feature distressed walls and a selection of pieces from the studio's line of furniture and lighting.  Photographs via Frama unless otherwise noted. Above: The entryway to Christophersen's apartment is painted in St. Paul's Blue , a shade he developed for Danish paint company Jotun (as Em of  Em's Design Blogg  says, "Somehow it manages to be calm and dramatic at the same time; it looks like the sky when thunder rolls in"). Frama's  90 Degrees Floor Lamp  provides illumination.  Above: A view into the dining room. Above: Ghosts welcome—Christophersen originally planned to paint the apartment white, but reconsidered when he realized that the peeling paint added atmosphere.
