A Day in AIAYU at the AUDO
When it comes to traveling I have never understood the sentence the people saying “It doesn’t matter where you live.” To me, it is just as important as the destination. I notice all the small details. The key to the room, the smell of the hand soap, the books on the table and the sheets on the bed. I spend my birthday at the new extraordinary hotel in Copenhagen – The Audo. It is in my opinion one of the most beautiful design hotels in this city and if you don’t plan on staying there, the café and the shop, is definitely worth a visit. As former CEO and founder of MENU, Bjarne Hansen took on a new venture with a strong vision to connect kindred spirits from across the globe, through this new space concept. With a clear idea in mind, he brought together different creative individuals and began the journey to manifest his dream together with Norm Architects and Nathan Williams from Kinfolk.
The name, Audo, is an abbreviation of the latin phrase Ab Uno Disce Omnes meaning ”from one, learn all”, defining the space as a place for people to share ideas, experiences and knowledge. The Audo is a meeting place where the international art and design community can come together, collaborate, experiment, and incorporate the inspiration they find into a unique story that they can then share with the world.
The Audo has partnered with a strong selection of brands, one of them being Aiayu. A danish company that makes clothes and products for the home, with care for the environment, the worker and the wearer.
