Exhibitions on the world map – they like it! Exhibitions around the world In 2010-2011, The Danish Design School continued its efforts to put Danish furniture design on the world map. From Milan to Japan. At the
Stockholm Furniture Fair 2011, FRAME, STV and the international press focused on The Danish Design School’s exhibition “Moving Texures”.
As a key element of the education programme, the school’s students work with everything from exhibition design and graphic design to film and communication, so the exhibitions work as a whole. In an interview with FRAME, Lecturer Andreas Lund explains why the Stockholm project attracted so much attention: “The mission was to investigate the language of textile structures and translate it into static structures. The 20 creations explored knitting, upholstering and plaiting mixed with plastic, metal, rubber and willow.” And student Åsa Kärner adds, “It was inspiring as we were students from the furniture, textile and product design programs, all working together (…) It’s a very creative atmosphere where we help each other with the intense projects.”
