The essential, defining character of Danish design lies in 'intangibles' such as superior craftsmanship and practical value—in a word, quality. MINDCRAFT11 highlights these fundamental attributes, both in terms of the exhibition's depth and breadth, where "a new generation of Danish craftspeople interpret and challenge these traditional values in a manner that is intelligent, playful and serious."
Function is the guiding principle of the exhibition, yet artisanship and artistry also remain paramount, where a strong sense of form and materials yield the overarching aesthetic.Mother of Pearl by Louise SassHaiku Sofa by GamFratesi
