Einfach gut.
Design aus Dänemark

Wilhelm Wagenfeld House, Bremen

– 22 April 2019




Danish design is often praised in debates about modern design and positively described as functional, stylish, and of high quality. Since the middle of the 20th century, Danish designers have been designing objects suitable for everyday use, which often find their way into the common household or are at least discussed by the middle classes.


In Denmark, unlike many other countries, the topic of design is explicitly assigned an important role. This is reflected in products made in the Scandinavian country, originating in this tradition and ultimately finding international recognition. Danish designers create sustainable and long-lasting products with a confident sense of style. The reception they receive in Danish society and the discourse around them further demonstrate the importance of the topic for the country.

Originally exhibited at the Embassy of Denmark in Berlin, the show “Einfach gut. Design aus Dänemark” [Simply Good. Design from Denmark] in the Wilhelm Wagenfeld House was extended to offer an overview of Danish design history, and also reflects on the somewhat romanticised notions of it. Among the objects on display are furniture and lighting classics by Finn Juhl, Verner Panton and Nanna Ditzel, as well as more recent designs such as a water-purifying straw and a medicine dosing system.
