On the top of a hill in the scenic landscape of Österlen in Sweden, you will find one of Scandinavia’s finest culinary experiences. Daniel Berlin, who used to run the two-Michelin-starred restaurant Daniel Berlin Krog, has now embarked on a new journey with Vyn restaurant & boutique hotel. With Vyn, he set out to create a true Scandinavian experience with a seasonal cuisine and interiors to match the surrounding landscape.

Interior Designer Lisa Mannheimer who worked closely with Berlin on this project, explains that the vision was “to create a place, a destination, for an overall experience where the restaurant, food and service are central but where the interior becomes an important part of the overall experience.”

The building, originally a stately farm, has been revitalised with carefully curated materials to ensure that the vision was brought to life. The materials used are consistent with the vision and guests will be met with warm and natural materials such as wood, stone, leather and wool which conforms with the Nordic ambience of the restaurant and hotel.

“What is important to me is to work with building details, materials, furnishings, and furniture that maintain a high quality and that appeal to all our senses,” continued Mannheimer. “It must last over time, it must age with dignity, but it must also be beautiful to the eye and preferably pleasant to hold and soft to the touch. If it also smells good of limestone and wood, that is an extra bonus”.

The attention to durability, high quality and tactual sensation includes the choice of hardware and lever handles. Throughout the hotel and restaurant guests get to experience the superior quality of the stainless steel lever handles from two of d line’s most loved collections designed by Arne Jacobsen and Knud Holscher. The iconic, curved lever handle by Arne Jacobsen was in fact designed after the shape a palm’s grip – creating an organic shape and a soft touch.

The d line handles are fitted on equally high-quality doors delivered by one of its partners, Njord Design, a Swedish door manufacturer that creates durable interior doors at their factory in Skåne. The lever handles and hardware from d line blend seamlessly with the deep green and massive oak doors and becomes an integral part of the space.
