COPENHAGEN DESIGN WEEK 2011
HAPPENINGText: Joanna Kawecki
Any design week will open a city’s best offerings up to the local and international public, and in Copenhagen- there is no exception.
The Danes are well-known for conscious and talented designers, innovative thinking in sustainability, and immaculate organization.
During the 6 days of Copenhagen Design Week, the city comes alive with celebrations for emerging and established Danish Design.
This years theme is to Think Human. How design can contribute to local and global challenges, in relation to an individual, and the global society.
The week offers an exciting line-up of Morning Talks, the inaugural INDEX:Award, guided architectural tours and accompanying exhibitions.
Discover beautiful furniture and design products through Open Studios, a chance to look into the spaces of Copenhagen’s leading designers and get the chance to personally speak with them about their work. Or learn more about Danish Design thoughts through Morning Talks, a series of talks and lectures on the Ship “Havet” with Denmark’s leading creatives.
A wonderful opportunity to discover why Copenhagen remains one of the world leaders in design and architecture.
