Vær med, når vi debatterer Københavns potentiale som international designdestination, når vi undersøger det danske design-DNA, og når vi samler en håndfuld designere o.a. kreative, som enten definerer sig designpolitisk via sine disruptive/atypiske/holdningsbårne arbejdsmetoder, eller forholder sig intellektuelt til et arbejdsmarked i forandring. Vi vil tale om, hvad der bestemmer dagens og morgendagens kreative arbejde og motivation.
På konferencescenen kan du høre, hvordan toneangivende designere som Tine Mouritsen og Lars Vejen arbejder, mens du på 3. dagen kan møde en stribe af de designprojekter, der vandt Danish Design Award i år.
Alle er velkomne som publikum til både debatter og oplæg. En registrering til møbel- og livsstilsmessen northmodern giver samtidig adgang til den designfaglige del på konferencescenen. Du kan præ-registrere dig gratis på northmoderns hjemmeside (ved indgangen koster entré €60).
The Danish design community is on to something big. We see a growing collaboration between private and public partners and the international world is looking closely at Danish design and architecture. Magazines like Wallpaper, Monocle and Kinfolk praise and rate Copenhagen as a must-go-to-destination. The Danish capital is loved for the biking culture, the liveable feel, the small scale, the green areas, the clean harbour, democratic architecture. Is it possible to include design in this equation? How do we articulate Copenhagen – and in a wider perspective, Denmark – as also being a #designdestination?
What the Nordic countries achieved with world-famous furniture design and architecture in the 50s and onwards, is now being taken into a new age: The Nordic design DNA is a cultural foundation that influences how we work with leadership, organisation and innovation. But what is this DNA exactly, and how is the Nordic design tradition creating competitive advantage for business?
In a world with an increasing pace of change, radical design thinking explores the moral limits of markets. It is political by nature and it nudges status quo and the main stream – carrying the germ of a paradigm shift. In this debate we explore the intrinsic motivations of Design.
Danish Architect and Designer Lars Vejen will give a speak about career, the resent founding of his own design studio and the event and exhibition Design Collaborations created with seven of his manufacturing partners.
1.618 Paris, the agency for Sustainable Luxury, will show for the first time in a design fair in Denmark, the highly innovative hydrogen car: the Toyota Mirai (“future” in Japanese).
Toyota will take the stage in the conference area to tell about the Toyota Mirai that was declared the 2016 World Green Car of the year at a press conference hosted by the New York International Auto Show. Indeed, Toyota hits the clean mobility sphere with its Fuel Cell Vehicle, the Mirai capable of traveling 480 kilometers whilst only rejecting water vapors.
Danish designer Tine Mouritsen runs her own design studio in Copenhagen. She works as a Space Designer and a Furniture Designer and in the field in between. Tine has realized design and concepts for a variety of clients such as By&Havn, Le Klint, Erik Jørgensen, Livingly, B&O and many others. Learn more about Tine’s design methods, her keen eye for colour and space design when she takes the stage.
The future of retail demands formats that are engaging, creative, extraordinary and different from everyday shops. Revitalising the physical store – and its close and dear sister in the shape of pop-up stores – are at the center stage for both big and small players in the retail game. But how do you go about it? What are the key factors that need to be present for a physical store to survive in the future?
Learn more in this speak delivered by the trend forecaster and bestselling book author Louise Byg Kongsholm from pej gruppen.

I’MPERFECT MUG are mugs with a little dot or scar on them, which instead of being routinely devalued and thrown away, are made into new unique pieces. Added graphics on each mug is applied according to the ‘defect’ of the mug, hence is different for every piece.
I’MPERFECT carries a big message: An imperfection is what makes us all unique. And an imperfection on a product level does not mean it belongs in the trash. In a world with a great need for sustainability, the I’MPERFECT series prove that products we normally see as second rate should live on as something new, useful and less generic.
With his Happaratus ‘power glove’ project, Morten Grønning Nielsen has made it possible to shape hard materials such as stone and wood manually with more sensitivity. Poetically, this helps man become a machine and turns the body into a maker. In a sense, he advances and perfects mankind while uniting the analogue and the electronic and drawing references to sculpting. He links innovation back to Scandinavian crafts traditions and combines the modern expression with the crafts traditions of his grandparents.
Reform Memory Carpets is a great example of an industrial process that incorporates sustainability at every stage. The project illustrates how the circular economy can offer an excellent business model, without any compromise on the product’s style, aesthetic and function. The consistent approach to sustainability that characterizes this collection sets a strong example for other industrial design companies.
This winner project invites us to ‘see with our fingers’ and look at the world through someone else’s perspective and another sense. It is a great tool, which can translate the experience of the blind weaver for us. The H.O.W – Hands On Woven project also lets blind weavers create products that are viable in a commercial market. It is a powerful and inclusive project.
