Josephine at home
Josephine Akvama Hoffmeyer -founder of File Under Pop- lives with her 3 kids in a beautiful corner apartment with wooden floors, high ceilings and large windows overlooking the Lille Triangel square on Østerbro, close to the center of Copenhagen.
Josephine is half Danish - half Ghanaian and her strong aesthetic sense combines the best of both cultures.
The mixture of the carefully selected ceramics, textiles, modern and vintage design gives Josephine Hoffmeyer´s home a special eclectic feel that also is a signature of her designs and products for File Under Pop.
Østerbro is situated at the north of Copenhagen center. Iit is a lively area with a local feeling. Josephine`s apartment is surrounded by small independed shops and local coffee bars. Her favourite one is Ricco´s, situated in the same building as her apartment. On the other side of the square you find the shop Moshi Moshi Mind that carries leisure wear that Josephine uses for her daily yoga ritual to help her to reduce stress and clear her mind before she goes to her studio.
Josephine loves the city life. The File Under Pop Studio is situated in the oldest neighbourhood of Copenhagen, Frederikstaden. Here are some tips from Josephine about places to visit in Copenhagen:
She frequently visits Stilleben for interior accessories and for their selection of ceramics. Fashion-wise, she recommends Baum und Pferdgarten. The founders Rikke Baumgarten and Helle Hestehave are close friends of Josephine. She really loves the quality and style of their brand. Stine Goya is another favorite brand, also situated in the center of Copenhagen. The newly opened Gubi Store has a strong personal style of interior and Josephine likes their choice of colours and textiles.
For vintage design Fil de Fer is a good place in Copenhagen, across her studio on Store Kongensgade.
In the weekends Josephine often escapes the city and goes for long walks on the beach in Tisvildeleje. She used to have a holiday house overthere. One day, she would like to live there on a permanent base.
