Danish Design – I Like It!
Opening this Friday at the Design Museum, Denmark is Danish Design – I Like It! – an exhibition celebrating classic Danish design as curated by noted British designer, Jasper Morrison.
Handpicked from the Design Museum, Morrison presents everyday items that emphasize the archetypal, humane and practical qualities associated with Danish design, including silverware by Henning Koppel for Georg Jensen, furniture by Fritz Hansen, and cookware by Jens Quistgaard (pictured).
“I am preoccupied by the beauty as well as the quality of Danish design – this means both its physical and its aesthetic qualities,” states Jasper Morrison. “The shapes represent the humane and the generous, which to me symbolises Danish design.”
The exhibition runs from April 8 to October 2 2011, and marks the Danish Museum of Art & Design’s change of name to Design Museum Denmark.
