The Danish exhibition at 100% Futures will feature works by upto 20 designers - including the following awards winning ones:
 
Cecilie Manz - her work is characteristic by simple, minnimalist geometry. She tends to find inspiration for new furniture designs in everyday life.

Louise Campbell - playful and experimental. She is gently twisting not onluy every day objects and situations, but also materials and manufacturing processes in new directions.

Thomas Bentzen - graphic, playful and straightforward inthe expression, Bentzen was originally a skilled carpernter graduating from the Danish Design School.

The curator of the Danish stand is designer Nina Tolstrup who runs Studiomama from the East End of London.

 

This selection of designers combines the rich heritage of cabinet making with a sense of quality and a new aesthetic sensibility. These new expressions are rooted in the golden era of Danish design, noted for its experimental and innovative methods that explore the possibilities of wood and production techniques.

All the pieces of furniture on show are perfect examples of sustainability.  They are telescoping quality furniture that lasts for generations, all made in sustainable wood – and Made in Denmark.

Featuring some of the best young Danish design talents, Made in Denmark promises to be one of the exciting highlights of 100% Futures. It is one of two major Danish design initiatives in London this autumn along with the Townhouse DK project, which features the complete transformation of a traditional English mews house into a modern Danish design home.

Made in Denmark is supported by the Danish Arts Agency, the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Embassy of Denmark and a number of private Danish foundations.
