meet the designers of this year

2016 IMM Cologne exhibition - Hall 4.2 A-007 and A-009

During recent years, much of our production has been moved away from Denmark. “Made in Denmark” has become
a rare certificate rather than the well-known and highly valued trade mark, that made Danish Design famous. Even
though this development can be reasoned in many ways, the defining one is, that manufacturing labour intensive
goods in Denmark is not competitive anymore. It is also obvious, that this is not just a danish phenomenon.


The danish design MAKERS will challenge this statement. How can design contribute to manifest the “made origins”
to a country like Denmark? A country´s design culture is very related to their production capabilities - they go hand in
hand. This relationship strengthens both - design and production. We would like to keep production, craftsmanship
and our tradition nearby. This is our culture - this is who we are.


The danish design MAKERS have invited 17 designers and design teams to take on “Made here…” and respond to
“design that can be manufactured in a country like Denmark.”


The designers are bound to develop their ideas, build their concepts into functional prototypes and communicate the
essence of their solution to the challenge of “Made here…”


“danish design MAKERS” are looking forward to seeing you at the IMM Cologne 2016
