Denmark Design: Danish feast


A buffet of Danish designs and discussions to savour before Auckland Art Gallery’s upcoming exhibition, Denmark Design.

Danish design is one of the few cultural hallmarks that has hypnotised the world with its principles and their irresistible charm. Functionality, sustainability, simplicity – these have been but some of the reasons we buy, mimic and distil Danish design into a lifestyle, as compulsively as buying a toothsome sweet. The Auckland Art Gallery’s upcoming exhibition, Denmark Design, then, is poised to be simply moreish.

To sate design cravings and early anticipation, Novelnyt will be be putting together a few Danish delights for you to relish over the coming weeks. Find these morsels below.
