During this year’s London Design Festival, Skandium will celebrate its exciting new retail concept, the Skandium Townhouse, with an installation by GamFratesi, and the world launch of a new, limited-edition PH 3½-3 Pendant Lamp from Louis Poulsen.

During this year’s London Design Festival, Skandium will celebrate its new retail concept, the Skandium Townhouse, cementing its presence as the foremost destination for Scandinavian design in the UK. The pioneering retail vision will see a four-storey house at 31 Thurloe Place, South Kensington, transformed into a brand-new design destination. Working within the natural scale of a home, Skandium will create room sets designed to inspire shoppers and demonstrate the unique character of Scandinavian living. The residential-meets-retail space will be populated with Skandium’s engaging mix of modernist masterpieces and future classics, expertly curated for the design conscious and the curious.
During the London Design Festival, before we officially move in, the Skandium Townhouse will have a fitting inauguration, with an exciting take-over by design duo GamFratesi, who will present their new Yuh collection for Louis Poulsen in a conceptual experience that draws on architectural structures inspired by Japanese paper art. The intriguing installation illustrates how Scandinavian lighting and furniture design can shape, frame and affect the ambiance of a room.
In addition to the Yuh collection, the installation will display the world premiere of a new limited-edition PH 3½-3 pendant with amber coloured glass and a brass suspension in a vintage style.
To the rear of the Townhouse, we have created a beautiful garden with Danish brand, Skagerak, where guests can enjoy a glass of prosecco every day between 5-6pm.
GamFratesi will visit the Skandium Townhouse on Thursday 21st September to talk about design, inspiration, and light.


Skandium is a British company founded in 1999 by three passionate Scandinavians: Christopher Seidenfaden, Christina Schmidt and Magnus Englund. Opening its doors on the 15th September 1999 at 72 Wigmore Street, London, Skandium has since grown to be one of the leading retailers of Scandinavian design in the world, offering a highly edited selection of design pieces, homeware and gifts and is the go-to place for discovering the latest Scandinavian talent. Skandium will now have three London flagship stores, a recently relaunched webshop, and operates the Republic of Fritz Hansen store in Fitzrovia.
