Past and Present

By Thedesignerpad @TheDesignerPad


Danish design has been in the vanguard for decades. We've all come to know and love the classic traits that have made this style an international force. While in Copenhagen, I paid a visit to the Danish Design Center, Denmark’s knowledge center for design, and was able to see some very cool exhibits. One of my favorites was Denmark by Design, an exhibit showcasing the development in Danish design from 1945 to 2010 and how it has become an integrated part of our everyday lives and mindset. The exhibition also explores the new generation of designers and companies that will design the decades to come and maintain Denmark's position as a leading design nation. The pieces were displayed by decades in a very clever way, giving a clear scope of the extensive contributions by Danish designers to modernity. I enjoyed everything about it, particularly being surrounded by so many iconic pieces of furniture I love and use in my everyday life, like Arne Jacobsen's Egg and Ant chairs and the Pantone chair by Verner Panton.
