Take a break from the bustling Parisian streets and step into our little corner of Denmark during the Olympic Games 2024. 

Introduction

When the Olympic Games kick off in Paris, Denmark will welcome locals and visitors to an innovative pavilion on the world-famous Champs-Elysées. Dubbed "The Denmark Pavilion," the 500 m2 pavilion will showcase inspiring Danish projects—all innovative and creative—that aim to solve everyday, local, and global challenges.

Experience an interactive exhibition area with fun activities, games, concerts, and much more. Be sure to check out the event programme, which is full of immersive experiences to tickle the senses. 

Together with the Ministry of Industry, Business and Financial Affairs, VisitDenmark is at the forefront of the push, which is supported, among others, by the philanthropic association Realdania and subsidised by The Trade Council.  

We're proud to present Denmark during the Paris 2024 Olympic Games and help bring the organisers' vision of 'Games Wide Open' to life – a true celebration of togetherness and shared experiences.

We look forward to welcoming you! 

Concept & Design

Nestled between the Maison du Danemark and Frederik’s Church, just off the iconic Champs-Elysées, the Denmark Pavilion will be built within and around the existing premises.

The location will be transformed into a Danish exhibition space, a collaborative effort by architects BRIQ and Lendager. The structure, thoughtfully crafted, seamlessly blends Danish innovation, green thinking and lifestyle expression, creating an immersive environment that mirrors the essence of Danish culture.

Additionally, the adjacent Frederik's Church transforms into a cultural stage, hosting intimate concerts and special events as well as serving as a window to Danish life through video installations.

Denmark Pavilion Chair

Designing products using upcycled materials – we imagined we could, and so we did! We've taken empty beer kegs, old fishing nets, and discarded wood and transformed them into a chair that adapts to various uses. It seamlessly shifts from dining to lounging, even doubling as stackable shelving or a component for, well, pavilions.

Initially intended for The Denmark Pavilion during the Tokyo Olympics 2020, the chairs ended on quite a different journey and have since travelled the world from Denmark to New York to Milan.

And now, you can witness the chairs returning to their original purpose – as the foundation of The Denmark Pavilion in Paris 2024. After the Olympic Games, they will find a new home at the Fondation Danoise – a base for Danish students and researchers, offering a unique combination of Danish hygge and cosmopolitan diversity in the heart of Paris.
