Jasper Morrison, my favourite Designer, curated an exhibition on Danish design in Copenhagen's Design Museum Denmark.The exhibition is a hand-picked selection of all-star Danish furniture classics that belong to the museum's extensive collection. Morrison's viewpoint has culminated in a selection of pieces that work to embody the classic and humane qualities that make up Danish design - a process he reveals to be more complex than initially anticipated.
'It is a very condensed selection - you've probably notice how jammed everything is', he explains, 'On the first day when we started, I was a bit worried we wouldn't have enough stuff, but by the end, we were just pushing things in and just moving things around, trying to squeeze them all in'. The exhibition has been set up in collaboration with Danish textile heavyweight Kvadrat, and Morrison has lined the panels of the exhibition's walls with Hallingdal, a textile designed in 1965 by Danish designer Nanna Ditzel, and one that has adorned countless design classics - from pieces by the likes of Fritz Hansen to Morrison himself. Copenhagen, here we come!
DANISH DESIGN - I LIKE IT!
