Papirøen, or "Paper Island," is an artificial island located on the inner harbor of Copenhagen, Denmark. Developed as part of a semester study abroad program at DIS, this brand concept aims to foster a vibrant and welcoming atmosphere on the island and to inspire a greater sense of community among its visitors.
The history of Papirøen plays a central role in the imagery of the brand. Originally built for use by the Danish Navy, the island was later converted to an industrial shipping and storage center for large rolls of newspaper.
Now a popular waterfront destination among locals, the island is home to selection of showrooms, art galleries, and food vendors that have taken up residence in Papirøen's original warehouse structures.
