ClapClapChair by Nis Bruun & Maria Bruun 
The ClapClapChair is created as a new interpretation of the Scandinavian design tradition. We have taken the best from the masters of the past and added a twist of humour and modern lifestyle. ClapClapChair is a modern but timeless folding chair, with its chubby and humorous design language it does not take itself too seriously. Here the focus is on the functionality and carefully designed details.
Dimensions: 750 x 450 x 400 mm
Materials: The chair is carried out in solid and laminated smoked oak.

To us Danish design is functionality, quality and an element of surprise. A good design builds and expands on the users expectations of quality and functionality. The surprising element stimulates reflection, growth and development. That small moment is where we as designers communicate directly with the users and create value.

One Liner Chair by Jonas Birkebæk & Christian Troels
The idea was to play around with the silhouette of a traditional chair using thin steel tube. With this distinctive silhouette combined with the lightness of the string seat we have tried to create a playful and comfortable chair. The One Liner Chair can be used both indoor and outdoor and it is stackable. The One Liner Chair is a part of a concept family of furniture also consisting of a lounge chair, a office chair, a bar chair and a rocking chair.     
Dimensions: 48w x 64d x 83h
Materials: Powder coated solid steel with white fabric string. 

Danish design is of course great attention to detail and beautiful combinations on materials and craftsmanship. Danish designers throughout time have always been able to keep up with time, continuing to challenge new materials and production methods. But maybe the most important task for danish designers today is to continue to tell new stories through innovative products in all price ranges. It is important that we constantly challenge peoples minds about what danish design is and letting them decide for themselves.

Slope Rocking Chair by Jonas Birkebæk & Christian Troels

The Slope Rocking Chair is a modern take on the traditional rocking chair. Denmark has a strong heritage of furniture using flat steel profiles, so a part of the concept was to take very traditional materials and add a more modern and fun shape. The name Slope comes from the distinctive sloped armrests. The Slope Rocking Chair is a part of a concept family of furniture also consisting of a lounge chair, a office chair, a bar chair and and a dining chair. 

Dimensions: 58w x 86d x 73h
Materials: Seat frame of powder coated steel tubes. The seat is braided from belts of ox leather. The armrests are made from flat stainless steel profiles.

Danish design is of course great attention to detail and beautiful combinations on materials and craftsmanship. Danish designers throughout time have always been able to keep up with time, continuing to challenge new materials and production methods.

Bo (Villa and Tower) by Jonas Lyndby Jensen
A storage furniture that has references to at house – a short plump Villa or a slender high-rise Tower building. The shape serves as a bookshelf, but may also be used as a dollhouse for children; or playfull adults! The 'roof' can be used to displace books on as well and the bookshelf can be placed on the floor, up against the wall or hung on the wall. Bo is a danish word for "to live". Not in the sense that "I am alive", but it is used regarding the way we live. "At bo i et hus" - "To live in a house". Bo is also the name of my brother.
Dimensions:
Bo Villa: 730h x 960w x 350d
Bo Tower: 930h x 670w x 350d
Materials: Oil treated oak and soap treated ash, painted
For me danish design is an old chair. But it is also a generation of talented designers striving to define their own ground. I believe that DDM is a great platform for young designers based on a Nordic heritage. The DDM exhibition allows us to show where we come from, but also shows where we are heading.

Repetitio by Thomas Albertsen
Repeat a shape, and thereby create a new shape. It's the simple idea behind the chair 'Repetitio'. Seat and backrest consists of five identical slats spaced about a slightly bent steel pipe, which forms a small part of a circle. The slats are mounted on a conventional steel frame by leading the frame through each slat. 'Repetitio' has a subtle sculptural expression. It represents a simple and stylish piece of furniture that upon closer examination clearly explains the concept.
Dimensions: 45w x 45d x 85h cm
Frame: Untreated steel
Slats: Painted wood
I believe design should come from within and be something personal, I do not follow much of fashion and the various trends I'm more interested in my own ideas. But when I call the design I'm making for Danish is it because I was raised with the Danish way of doing things in all aspects of life. For me, Danish design is, honest, but with humour. For me form must follow function and I think that Danish design does this really well.
miX-chair, miX-shelf by MJUKA 
Our design „miX chair“ is an oversize lounge-chair, that gives a cosy alternative to a couch. The construction of the crossed legs is out of pinewood and gets combined with a shell covered in wool fabric. The topic of crosses gets translated in the different fabrics and layers of the chair. The second design is the hanging “miX shelf“, which is as well working with the element of crosses. The pattern in the shelf combines the stabilising function of the crosses with the aesthetics of a pattern.
Dimensions: 
miX- chair: length: 110d x 710w x 112h cm
miX- shelf: length: 105d x 65w x 230h cm
Materials: 
miX-chair: pinewood, wool fabric
miX-shelf: pinewood, cotton fabric
For us danish design is an honest way of design, that shows what it is through its function and materials. It’s a clean and somehow light way of design, that lives through quality and natural materials. The way of design is subtle but convincing in the details. Its all about the love to your design!

Dimensions: 33 x 34 cm (wall hung mirror)
Materials: Mirror glass, oak, teak, MDF
For us Danish design is products with a long-lasting expression through a precise and effortless style. Design that has a modernistic and clearly readable appearance, where superfluous details are cut away and the function itself is in focus.

Endless Tablecloth by Evalou Hauge

The idea of the Endless Tablecloth is that you can create the appearance of your own tablecloth from a number of different pieces, each measuring 1x1,5 meter. These pieces fit together no matter how you combine them and the length of the tablecloth can be everything from 2 meters to theoretically endless. The tablecloths will then be individually woven. The design is hand drawn by Evalou.

Dimensions: 2 rolls of textiles, each measuring 150x800cm

Materials: 100% black and white cotton

For me Danish Design is a long and great tradition of “making love to materials”. That means understanding the pure essence of wood, cloth and metal almost like a scientist. And then later applying it to shape and space in a very passionate way almost like an artist. That is Danish Design for me!

Rar by Øivind Slaatto

Rar is the result of a Danish designer traveling to Japan. Even though the distance between Japan an Denmark equals half the trip around the globe, there is a strong connection between the two design cultures. Both celebrate simplicity, honest construction and pure materials and have this certain “something” which I cant't explain with words but hopefully with this furniture.

Tro by Carla Botosso Kolster

Tro is a bedside tablet that helps you organise the things around you before you go to sleep. Create your own ritual! The table is ideal to put your jewellery’s and the electronics far away from a glass of water and it’s also a book holder. Inspired by the moment when we put our hands together and allow ourselves to believe... Everything is going to be all right. Sleep well.

Dimensions: 85x45x25 cm ( 2 pcs variation)
Materials: finer / plywood / ceramic

For me Danish Design has so much personality. It is not easy to simplify the message and context of the creation and still Danish Design manages in a very subtle way.

Clock by Birgitte Due Madsen & Jonas Trampedach

A perforated steel plate has been the starting point of this design. Besides giving transparency to the Wall mounted clock, the hexagonal pattern points out the even numbers.

Materials: Perforated steel plate / Aluminium / Glass / Nylon.

Dimensions:
Small Clock: D 50 x W 300 mm
Large Clock: D 50 x W 440 mm

To us Danish design represents straightforwardness towards function, use of materials and quality, combined with pared down aesthetic. Having a long history of design making, we as designers feel lucky to grow up with an understanding of this culture, and having the opportunity to contribute to it.

Billie by Jonas Lyndby Jensen

The structure is designed so that the user can 'grab' the chair towards seating, and allows support when leaving the chair. The chair has references to several classic cabinetmakers chairs, not in material, but in the shape of the back, and the clear distinction of what is the supporting and the supported. This principle relies on the separation between the seat and back from the supporting frame. This visually gives the chair a lighter appearance and emphasizes the functions of the two parts. Bille is the danish word for beetle. Bille is also the name of my son.

Materials: A 16mm steel tube construction with upholstered seat and back. The prototype is upholstered with 'Steel Cut Trio' from Kvadrat.

For me/us danish design is: an old chair. But it is also a generation of talented designers striving to define their own ground. I believe that DDM is a great platform for young designers based on a Nordic heritage. The DDM exhibition allows us to show where we come from, but also shows where we are heading.

The LL chair is a simple and light weight dining chair with a low armrest. The chair basically consists of two curves – one curve defining the front legs and low back rest – the other curve defining the hind legs and upper back rest. These two curves are joined at the armrest and by the seat.

Dimensions: H78 x W48 x D50 cm
Materials: Birch veneer + moulded birch veneer 

For me danish design is: Working and experimenting with various materials, leading to a clean and neat expression that is functional as well as aesthetically.

Paper Table by Jonas Birkebæk & Christian Troels

The main inspiration for The Paper Dining Table was found in traditional paper folding. We call it sheet metal origami, and the main concept is to fold thin sheet metal plates into strong and distinctive shapes. With the contrast between the light sheet metal legs combined with the dark oak table top, we have tried to create a 'story' that is both traditional and modern at the same time.

Dimensions: W: 100 x D: 200 x H: 74
Materials: Table top is made of solid oak and the legs are made of powder coated sheet metal.

Danish design is of course great attention to detail and beautiful combinations on materials and craftsmanship. Danish designers throughout time have always been able to keep up with time, continuing to challenge new materials and production methods. But maybe the most important task for danish designers today is to continue to tell new stories through innovative products in all price ranges.

Archivist by Mads Johansen & Antonio Scaffidi

The archivist is a classic shelf unit. It stores effectively and is also very flexible. The design is clean and honest with focus on the connecting details between legs and shelves. The elements function underline the pragmatic origin of the archivist's design. Legs are made to handle vertical forces, since they carry the load, that fore they are cut from sheets of steel. The shelves on the other hand are required to stay horizontally straight. Sandwich boards are fairly form-stable and allow for a long span of the shelf. The connection between legs and shelves are made with two bolts each corner. These bolts are an important detail of the construction and by emphasizing them as part of the design they contribute to the archivist's story.

Dimensions: W: 1600mm x H: 1800mm x D: 380mm
Materials: Steel / sandwich board / oak wood

For us danish design is functional with a delicately simple approach to form and an honest use of materials and craftsmanship. It is very conscious about is origins, yet it seems to fit-in everywhere.

Tabula Slender by Antonio Scaffidi

Tabula Slender is a table with a slender expression and a continuously flowing contour along its edges. Legs and table top are arranged to visually unify these elements as one. The strict distribution of the four table legs at the outer corners emphasizes the span and lightness of the construction. This also underlines the pragmatic functionality of the design – no space is wasted. All corners are rounded softly.

With the coffee table Coffee n Rest, I invite you to break the old dogma and please put your feet up. The coffee table consists of a powder coated steel frame, where in there are two plates. It is possible to turnover each plate, on the one hand, there is a traditional wooden table top with a tray edge, on the other hand, there is a padded cushion. In this way it is possible to choose if you want your feet up or your cup down, as it is a snap to turn the plate in the table. 

Dimensions: Width 65 cm length 100 cm height 38 cm

Frame: Powder coated steel
