At the top of a hill in the picturesque Österlen landscape, you will find one of Scandinavia's finest culinary experiences. Daniel Berlin, who previously ran the two-starred restaurant Daniel Berlin Krog, has now embarked on a new journey with restaurant Vyn. With Vyn, he aimed to create a true Scandinavian experience with a seasonal kitchen and an interior that complements the surrounding nature.

Vyn means view in Swedish, and the place certainly lives up to the name with its mesmerizing view of the Baltic Sea. Interior designer Lisa Mannheimer from Fojab Arkitekter, who worked closely with Daniel on the project, explains that the vision was "to create a place, a destination, a complete experience where the restaurant, the food, and the service are central but where the interior becomes an important part of the overall experience."

The building has been revitalised with carefully selected materials to ensure the vision was realised. Guests are greeted with warm and natural materials such as wood, stone, leather, and wool that resonate with the Nordic atmosphere in the restaurant and the hotel. Local actors and producers of interior design and furniture have been chosen as much as possible.

"What's important to me is to work with building details, materials, interior design, and furniture that maintain a high quality and appeal to all our senses. It must stand the test of time, age gracefully, but also be visually pleasing and preferably pleasant to hold and soft to touch. If it also smells good, like limestone and wood, it's an added bonus," explains Lisa.

The focus on sustainability, high quality, and design includes the choice of doors and fittings. When Daniel first bought Njord's doors for his home, he realised they would also be a perfect fit for his new restaurant. The doors have been tailored for the restaurant - around the reception and in selected areas, doors clad with oak panels that harmonise with the environment can be found. Each hotel room has doors in a deep green colour, and even the impressive entrance door, a double door in oak with sidelights, is custom-made for the restaurant. "We are proud to have contributed to this project. As a food enthusiast and admirer of Daniel's talent, it is particularly gratifying," says Johan Kinning from Njord.

Throughout the hotel and the restaurant, guests can experience the superior quality of stainless steel handles from two of d line's most beloved collections designed by Arne Jacobsen and Knud Holscher. The iconic, curved handle by Arne Jacobsen was actually designed based on the shape of a palm's grip - creating an organic form and a soft touch.
