Why I like it: You’ll find a wide selection of poster art with a retro style. Soft colors, with an art déco font and simple lines are characteristic to ViSSEVASSE’s prints, all inspired by distinctive local and global landmarks. Think Stockholm’s Vasabro bridge, Copenhagen’s skyline, Norway’s fjords, Tivoli’s Ferris Wheel, Aarhus’s town hall bell tower, Ribe’s cathedral and storks, and many more. It’s also where you’ll find the hugely popular prints by Vee Speers.

About the shop: “New York’s legendary Chrysler building, the characteristic Vasabro bridge in Stockholm or Arne Jacobsen’s iconic town hall bell tower in Aarhus. ViSSEVASSE portrays the distinctive landmarks of cities and countries in a subtle palette with a Nordic expression that leaves out all superfluous features while preserving the mood of recognisability, history and art deco inspiration. ViSSEVASSE was founded in 2013 and launched Langebro as the first city poster. With its references to 1930s poster artists and the mint/turquoise colours of the era, it set the tone for the upcoming collection of posters featuring landmarks from Danish and European cities.
‘We see the posters striking a nostalgic chord with the audience, as they are reminded of the summer holidays of their childhood when they see the poster of the caravan in the Danish landscape – or of the skiing holiday in Norway when they see our interpretation of the snow-covered mountains,’ says Karsten Noel.” – Read more.
