Guest Editor, Zeynep Rekkali from Mearto discusses the evolution of Danish Design;

“The words that immediately come to mind about “Danish Design” possibly range along these lines: functionalist, minimalist, pure and sleek lines, meticulous craftsmanship, and sturdy yet elegant designs. Thriving mainly in 1940s to 1960s, Danish Modern, belonging to the family of Scandinavian Modern, branching from mid-century modern design, is now more popular than ever, with growing interest by each day.”
