Et folk og dets møbler.
A story about design in Denmark
This study is an attempt to investigate the relationship which the Danes of today have with their national design heritage. Four Danes of different age groups and professions are asked to speak about homes, chairs and being Danish. The movement in architecture and design in the 20th century must be credited – to this day, neither its style nor its philosophy have lost ground. A democratic design development in the mid-century and a social system that blurred lines between social separations made high quality design available to the broad public. Even today, children grow up with the names of Jacobsen and Wegner.
