Intro
It is Skønvirke, the Danish form of Art Nouveau, that created the basis for modern Danish design. In this comprehensive exhibition of Danish works, Art Deco trends are also featured as well as those of functionalism.

Danish Design is inextricably linked with the design icons of the twentieth century. From Kaare Klint via Arne Jacobsen to Verner Panton, they informed the product and home decor culture of whole generations particularly in the latter half. However, that equally significant designers, craftspeople and internationally observed trends preceded this era receives far less attention. Yet it is Skønvirke, the Danish form of Art Nouveau, that created the basis for modern Danish design. In this comprehensive exhibition of Danish works, Art Deco trends are also featured as well as those of functionalism. ‘Made in Denmark’ was finally established as an international brand by 1945. Danish, and by extension Scandinavian, design has been a role model ever since and remains the epitome and expression of a timeless modern lifestyle to this day.
