Audo Copenhagen - A Brand with a Story
Audo Copenhagen is not just a brand - it is also a story of passion, vision and collaboration. The brand was born from the merger of two Danish design brands: by Lassen and MENU, both with a rich history and a strong identity. By Lassen was founded in 2008 by the third and fourth generations of the Lassen family, who wanted to continue the legacy of their ancestors, the architects Mogens and Flemming Lassen.
MENU was founded in 1976 by Simon Hansen, who had a dream of creating high-quality products with a Scandinavian aesthetic. In 2023, both brands were acquired by the Italian entrepreneur Alessandro Sarfatti, who saw the potential of combining their strengths and values. He decided to rename them as Audo Copenhagen, a brand that celebrates the fusion of Danish design and Italian craftsmanship.
Audo Copenhagen is more than just a name - it is also a concept and a place. The word Audo is derived from the Latin word audire, meaning ‘to listen’ or ‘to hear’. This reflects the brand’s philosophy of listening to the needs and desires of its customers, partners and collaborators, as well as being open to new ideas and inspirations.
The place is The Audo1, a hybrid space located in Copenhagen’s new neighbourhood Nordhavn2, that combines design showroom, hotel residence, shop, café and restaurant.
The Audo is a meeting point for creative minds, where they can interact, exchange and co-create. The Audo showcases the products of Audo Copenhagen and its partner brands, as well as hosting events, exhibitions and workshops. The Audo is also a living example of the brand’s vision of creating beautiful, functional and sustainable spaces that enhance human well-being.
