We are proud to reveal our upcoming exhibition Re-Framing Danish Design together with Frame. Two international designers have been invited to re-interpret Danish design.

We have a long design tradition in Denmark, of which we are very proud. As a part of the launch of DANISH™, we thought it would be interesting to see what would happen to some of the Danish icons if put in the hands of two international designers. Therefore, we teamed up with renowned magazine Frame.

The two lucky designers invited to add their personal touch are Sebastian Herkner from Germany and Niek Pulles from the Netherlands. Sebastian studied product design at the HfG Offenbach am Main University, and has previously worked with Moroso and Gubi. Niek studied at the Design Academy in Eindhoven and likes to investigate the interaction between body and material. He is known for his Foamboys, used by Comme des Garçons.

There will be ten Danish companies taking part in Re-Framing Danish Design.  W are proud to reveal that the following objects will be featured: Brdr. Krüger’s Tray Table by Hans Bølling, Fredericia’s J39 by Børge Mogensen, Fritz Hansen’s 7 Series chair by Arne Jacobsen, Montana and their Montana system by Peter J. Lassen, Lightyear’s Caravaggio lamp by Cecilie Manz, Carl Hansen & Søn’s Safari Chair by Kaare Klint, handpainted wallpaper by Zilmers and the brand new ‘Plateau’ by Søren Rose Studio to be launched for DK3, the Tongue by Arne Jacobsen from HOWE and the Fiber Chair by MUUTO.

Re-Framing Danish Design will be on display during 3 Days of Design and takes place at The Silo from 28 May until 30 May.
