Denmark is famous for its design, and many people around the world aim to emanate the Danes’ sleek, functional style in their homes and interiors. To learn more about the history and importance of Danish design, take a trip to the Designmuseum Danmark. Conveniently located in the centre of the city, the Designmuseum Danmark presents a fascinating journey through the 20th and 21st centuries, where you can learn about the design of everything from furniture to fashion to bicycles. One of the highlights has to be the permanent exhibition called 'The Danish Chair: An International Affair', which tells the story of how Danish chairs became international exports and put Denmark on the map as a world design powerhouse. Marvel at Arne Jacoben’s iconic ‘Swan’ and ‘Egg’ chairs and learn about the importance of this seemingly simple piece of furniture. After you’ve had your fill of design, you can refuel at the museums’s cafe, which serves coffee, snacks and full meals, including lots of Danish classics. There's also a small garden to enjoy some fresh air with your refreshments.

Superb introduction to Danish Design
(Edited: 2 years ago) 2 years ago
Danes are supremely proud of their functional design philosophy, and its success has seen Danish products sold around the globe. Lamps, chairs, buildings and even otherwise mundane items like tea-pots get a complete makeover in the world of Danish Design. This museum gives a superb introduction and history to Danish Design, and I can highly recommend it for anyone inquisitive about what Danish Design is all about.
