Danish Design and Architecture Books:
Ten Key Themes in Danish Design


  • Moderation in the dialogue with other countries
  • Building bridges – ‘preserving the continuity of development’
  • Liveability – creating a (Nordic) atmosphere
  • Tool aesthetics, simplicity and the detail
  • Crafts as a source of innovation for industrial design
  • The value of symbolism and associations
  • The social and empathetic profile – the user focus
  • The anti-authoritarian stance – pulling together
  • The ecological imperative – sustainability
  • The new temperament

Excerpted from 101 Danish Design Icons, (Hatje Cantz: 2017)
