The development of research and educational programmes at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, The School of Design reflects the development of Danish design and crafts. For more than 135 years, The School of Design has contributed to the development of Danish design with an international reach.
The school is founded on the Nordic design tradition, where functionality and aestetics go hand in hand with business sense. Today The Danish Design School is a mordern, business-oriented design school where new partnerships, ambitious visions and new technologies go hand in hand with creative artistic development and professional innovation.
The School of Design
The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, The School of Design has developed into a modern design school with an international perspective, and in 2010-2011 we will continue to take on a number of major tasks. We are moving to Holmen in the centre of Copenhagen where The Danish Design School will contribute to one of Denmark’s most dynamic and creative educational environments.
In 2011 The School started a process towards a merger with the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture and School of Conservation that was complated in 2012.
By 2010 we have already expanded Denmark’s design map through a merger with the Glass and Ceramic School on Bornholm, which has been a part of The School of Design since January 2010. This merger is a natural culmination of many years of successful collaboration.
