Denmark has a long-standing tradition for integrating design, technical disciplines and innovation.
A key competence in Danish design is to create connectivity. The interaction between the designer and the end-user, the attention to detail in construction and manufacturing, and the wish to simplify are all characteristic traits of the “Danish Design” concept.

What is a “Design Centre” in Denmark?
A design centre has a holistic approach to aesthetics, usability, functionality and technology when developing products and services.
