As media partner of the Danish Design Award, DANISH™ has asked a handful of the sponsors to elaborate on the fact that they’re actually supporting Danish design by sponsoring the event. Learn why they support a national award show praising design solutions that make a difference.

Ege Carpets

“When we travel around the world and explore new possibilities and movements within interior and architecture, or when the purpose of the journey is to develop eye-catching design solutions to leading hotels, offices and cultural institutions, we always enjoy the good reputation of Danish design. ‘Danish design’ is an effective door opener and a phenomenon that we each day feel proud representing. Therefore, we are happy to support the entire Danish design industry by contributing with custom-designed carpets for the Danish Design Award. In this way, we are able to showcase our own design efforts for an engaged audience, while at the same time having the pleasure of being part of a design community that is so unique to Denmark.”
