Inside PR turns four years today and we celebrate this event by looking back at some of the highlights from the past four years.
Our PR and communications agency was established in June 2012 where we started in Katrines private home. Already in August we landed our first client and in December we moved into our first office in Store Regnegade in Copenhagen. This was also the place where we celebrated the company’s first birthday, which we celebrated by inviting the press, clients and good friends of the company to celebrate our first birthday with bubbles, delicious food and sweet desserts.
Shortly after in October 2013, we expanded our business and moved to a larger location in Store Kannikestræde in Copenhagen, where the company is still based today. The location was chosen because of the great facilities, which allowed us to establish a showroom. Furthermore, this location also enabled us to house our first Press Day in April 2014, which we still host twice a year. 2014 was also the year where we landed our first international client.
In January 2015, we offered our clients the possibility of a shared stand at the Northmodern Fair, where we had fun with arranging the stand and talking to the press during the fair. This experience was very educational and a beneficial experience for us, as we got an insight into how much work it takes to prepare a fair and we gained enormous respect for all of those people who prepares stands multiple times a year.
In August 2015, we expanded further and establish contact to the Norwegian and Swedish market, which has been very exciting for us and rewarding for our clients.
Now we write June 2016 in the calendar and our PR and communication agency is turning four years old. We will celebrate our birthday with the whole Inside PR team, and are looking forward with excitement to see what the future brings. A huge “thank you” to all clients and business partners, who have believed in us and been part of our journey.
With the theme "Go Spring", we once again invited the press into our showroom in central Copenhagen. In honour of the occasion, we transformed the showroom into a colourful design universe, which we had carefully styled with the latest products from our clients. To emphasise our spring theme, we had teamed up with Grøn Grøn, a company who offers flower subscriptions with seasonal flowers, and SundSnack, who supplies fruit schemes for businesses.
We started the day at 12 o’clock with a cosy Friday ambience, which included gourmet pizzas and delicious beer. It was Italian Eva, owner of MadenItaly on Copenhagen Street Food, who prepared and served homemade vegetarian pizzas for the press. In addition to the tasty pizzas, the low-calorie beer from the brewery, TeeDawn, was also a success because of their fresh taste and lower percentage of alcohol.
We counted 50 journalists consisting of editors, bloggers, instagrammere etc., who filled our showroom with a great atmosphere. At 8pm, we closed the doors after another successful press day.
We have entered February, which also means more interior design fairs! Thursday February 4th, we loaded the car with coffee, breakfast and excitement and headed for the Formland Interior Design Fair in Herning.
One of the trends on the fair was ”Slow Living”, where Japan was a clear influence. This pattern repeated itself at the Formland fair, as the Trend Zone “O-Ha-Yoo” included a Japanese Tea Saloon with a traditional tea ceremony, a Matcha Tea bar and a Japanese flower arranging workshop, Ikebana, among others. All things that should help us recharge and unwind, in true spirit of the “Slow Living”.
We came just in time for the press lunch, and the Japanese trend could not be overlooked. Simple table setting with earthy colours, bamboo trees, and young people playing on traditional Japanese drums as a welcoming and opening of the press lunch, setting the mood. While we ate the Japanese inspired food and matcha dessert, Anette Eckmann from Eckmann Studio explained about the ideas behind the Trend Zones and how Japan and Scandinavia meet. The focus on craftsmanship and thoroughness is what East and West have in common. But here in the West, we should try and focus more on thoroughness, not only in design, but also in life. Take some time off to yourself and to go deeper into what you do, with no interruptions.
With our heads and stomachs full of inspiration, we headed out to visit the stands. Among the brands were the Danish interior brand Skriver Collection and the Norwegian sisters behind the ceramic brand Ment. The thing both brands had in common at the fair, was the variety of beautiful calm colours, all inspired by the nature. It was easy on the eye and made your mood!
In good spirit and with our heads filled with the latest trends, news and inspiration, we got in the car and headed back to Copenhagen. This was definitely worth the trip!
It is dark and cold in the middle of January, but inside Bella Centret at the northmodern design fair it is warm! Northmodern opened the doors for the design industry for the 3rd time, and we were there to see all the hot news. At northmodern the best brands within the furniture industry, lifestyle and industrial design were presented, and among our brands represented this year were Strikaholic, New Works, Marset, Studio Italia Design, Paradisco Productions, Novel Cabinet Makers and Malle W. Trousseau.
Malle W. Trousseau, is Roomstore’s newest brand, who produces boxes with a variety of quality kithen supplies. These products were displayed and tested at a collaboration between BoxOne/Køkkensnedkeren who designed a transportable kitchen for the fair, and the Head Chef from Restaurant Rebel, Martin Hylleborg made delicious samples using the cooking utensils from Malle W. Trousseau.
The lectures this year focused a lot on the trends of the importance of nature, craftsmanship, ”Rediscovering” and ”Digital detox”. These trends were easy to observe, as more than half of the space at the fair was dedicated to ”Slow Living”.
We enjoyed getting out of the cold January weather and into the spirit of slow living, hot news and exciting trends. We look forward to the next northmodern fair.
