Proving just how timeless Danish design is, the new exhibition at the Danish Design Museum in Copenhagen will be permanent, theatrically showcasing a condensed collection of visionary design. Danish Design Now opened on the 11th March 2016 and includes over 300 design exhibits stretching from ceramics to industrial design. It focuses on the contemporary Danish design scene and showcases the latest game-changing pieces.

On offer is furniture for the domestic and commercial, examples of sustainable design, fashion design, product design, and graphic design, which incorporates everything from drinks labels to street signs. But the most intriguing feature is the ‘Super Objects’ – a look at handicrafts and their potential source of inspiration for new industrial design. Ceramic, glass and jewellery feature, while one-of-a-kind objects add to the overall quirkiness. Some objects only created for the exhibition give a sense of the unique experience for visitors, especially as all the items exhibited are still in production. Interviews with 20 of the exhibitors offer insight into the design process and the designers approach to their work.

Words are my thing, and so are great designs. Based in the UK, and since graduating in English Lit, I try as much as possible to read everything to do with design, culture and style. Since travelling to Norway and Denmark a handful of times, I have become besotted with Scandinavian style and design.
