On Your Shoulders in London

About On Your Shoulders

What made Danish design from the forties, fifties and sixties so successful?
What can we learn from the approach by the Danish designers of that era?

We have asked these questions to the furniture design students from the 6th semester at VIA Teko Design & Business, and here they offer their proposals.

The process has been short and intense: The assignment was presented to the students February 11 and they had to present their designs March 14.
They were teamed up in pairs to define their common design briefs and to help and support each other.
The main themes of the approach are exploiting the properties of the materials, focusing on detail and optimizing methods in industrial production.
Based in the past and with present lifestyle in mind we present 14 new designs, which all are promising bids to continue this tradition.

Before sending all of our furniture with DSV to London Design Festival, we had to make sure the products were packed and ready for the travel!
Therefore we build solid travel boxes to make sure nothing happened to our precious furniture!

See you there?

Goccia is inspired by nature’s forms and Børge Mogensen’s choice of materials.
The shape of Goccia is based on the shape of a water drop. It is meant for storage of small items, such as keys and gloves etc.; things that easily creates clutter.
The construction consists of wood and is covered with
hand-stitched leather. There are four rooms, including two shelves.
Goccia has side openings that are closed with magnetic leather flaps.

“PI” combines values from functionalism with more expressive
and artistically orientated Danish design traditions.
The bench has a simple and tactile expression,
where functionality is seen in its simple form and function.
The expressive element is seen in the leg detail and in the upholstery,
which is an aesthetic reflection on one of the frequently used
design and decoration elements; – the weaving.
