Since the mid 20th century, Danish design, craftsmanship, and architecture have become world known for their minimalistic, functional esthetics and high crafted quality.
From exceptional buildings and houses to beautiful furniture, bikes and hi-fi systems. Today, iconic design is seen throughout the Danish homes and cityscapes. Pioneering architects and designers such as Arne Jacobsen, Hans Wegner, and Børge Mogensen were highly inspired by the simultaneous development of the Danish welfare model evolving through the 20th century. In this regard, houses, furniture and interior were designed and price tagged to raise the living standard among the broad population.
Few things symbolize the Danish and Scandinavian way of living better than the outcomes of this period, which spread across the Nordic countries. The development of the nordic design traditions was in this period closely connected to egalitarian political aspirations. In this regard, with ideals about beauty, comfort and high quality to the people as the overall objective. Thus, the home and its related objects became symbols of the political development of the welfare state in which beauty for all was a central design guide to create better lives for the many.
