Danish Desire
Jan 23
digital project

Danish design has evolved and remains a significant contributor to design at large.

The Danish tradition of strong collaboration between architects/designers and craftsmen has created a rich environment for new designs over the past 100 years and is as much alive today as it was 100 years ago.

We will host a virtual round table discussion with key individuals in the Danish and Canadian design communities. Subjects to be discussed will include the importance of:

• intimate knowledge of materials,
• use of latest technology
• training/apprenticeship of craftsmen
• formal schooling of designers/architects

On our ‘Danish Desire’ webpage, please view our video clips from visits to the workshops of several Danish manufacturers to see how they remain relevant in an ever-changing world.


Presented by the Royal Danish Consulate General and TORP Inc. Panel members to be announced.
