A team of teachers and external supervisors asked furniture design students from the 6th semester at VIA Teko Design & Business What made Danish design from the forties, fifties and sixties so successful? And, What can we learn from the approach by the Danish designers of that era?

 

The process was short and intense. The students had less than one month from the date the project was assigned to complete their designs. The main themes of the approach are exploiting the properties of the materials, focusing on detail and optimizing methods in industrial production. Based in the past and with present lifestyle in mind they presented 14 new designs, which all are promising bids to continue this tradition.

 

Here were our favorites.
