Danish design from 1900The exhibition showcases Danish design from 1900 to the present day. Danish designers from Kaare Klint to Arne Jacobsen and Verner Panton have left their mark on the tastes and domestic interiors of whole generations – above all in the second half of the 20th century, when »MADE IN DENMARK« established itself as an international trademark. However, it is a seldom addressed aspect that this era was preceded by equally influential designers and craftspeople, and internationally regarded tendencies.
The exhibition shows both the forerunners of the Danish design phenomenon and developments since the postmodern era. Furniture, pottery, porcelain, glass and silver form the focus of the show. Danish design is still hugely influential today and is widely regarded as epitomizing a timeless yet modern and relaxed lifestyle.
An exhibition in cooperation with the GRASSI Museum of Applied Arts, Leipzig.
