- Created: 2020
Welcome to the café
Artist Jytte Sølvbjerg loves the special atmosphere foun in cafés, because she believes they are the best place just to sit and think. That's why she was in no doubt that she would create a café when asked to decorate an Art Tower.
The tower, which is surrounded by open fields, is furnished with a table and benches, and decorated with gold frames and mirrors. Today the tower is also decorated with messages from guests who have visited the café.
Bring along your own coffee and cake and visit the world's (possibly) smallest café.
Jytte Sølvbjerg (b. 1954) studied at the Funen Academy of Art and works in the media of photography and painting.
As well as working as an artist Sølvbjerg has been employed as a interior designer in the Faroe Islands and as a scenery painter for Nordisk Film.
