Nominated designs and the recently-announced winners for the Danish Design Awards for 2017 can now be seen in an exhibition in the entrance lobby of Industriens Hus on H.C. Andersens Boulevard in Copenhagen … the headquarters of DI or Dansk Industrie which is the Confederation of Danish Industry.
The awards were divided into an almost bewildering number of categories - including Better Learning, Daily Life, Fostering Partnerships and an award for the outstanding design for Improved Welfare - but this simply reflects a diverse range of modern products where imagination or lateral thinking and the application of good design principles can resolve a huge range of problems in modern life.
All the finalists and the winners are on the Danish Design Award site and it really is worth spending time to look at all the designs and products shown there because it does prove that good design really does matter and that the implementation of good design principles and the appreciation of well made and well designed products permeates through so many aspects of life in Denmark.
note: the text of the exhibition is in English and the web site is in Danish or English.
continues until 29th September 2017
