The Danish Design DNA
What does it mean when something is “Danish design”? With The Danish Design DNA, we have mapped out the features that characterise the thousands of different ideas that are conceptualised, designed and produced with the help of Danish designers.
The Danish Design Council, Danish Design Centre, The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation and Design Museum Denmark have mapped the Danish Design DNA.
The Danish Design DNA consists of ten values that are of course not unique to Danish Design. However, when put together like a string of DNA, they show what makes Danish design unique.
Interviews on the Danish Design DNA
