‘danishdesign MAKERS’

In an age where information, impressions and thereby influences are spread and shared in an instance, we wondered:
What will root design in the future; and will a single design culture be recognizable and able to stand out?

‘danishdesign MAKERS’ is an alliance of designers with different nationalities and back­grounds, but all with a strong relation to the Danish design culture. We believe that Danish Design is part of a culture that values honesty, simplicity and functionality.It is also something with a story worth telling.

“Made here…”

During recent years, much of our production has been moved away from Denmark. “Made in Denmark” has become a rare certificate rather than the well-known and highly valued trade mark, that made Danish Design famous. Even though this development can be reasoned in many ways, the one standing out is, that manufacturing labour intensive goods in Denmark is not competitive anymore. It is also obvious, that this is not just a danish phenomenon.

The danish design MAKERS will challenge this statement. How can design contribute to manifest the “made origins” to a country like Denmark? A country´s design culture is very related to their production capabilities – they go hand in hand. This dependency does strengthen both – design and production. We would like to keep production, craftsmanship and our tradition near by. This is our culture – this is who we are.

This year the danish design MAKERS have invited 15 designers and design teams to take on “Made here…” and come up with their answers to – design that can be manufactured in a country like Denmark.

 

 

“danish design MAKERS” are looking forward to seeing at the IMM Cologne 2016!
