The cream of the crop of Danish ceramics, glass, textile and furniture is represented in Danish Crafts’ annual collection of modern Danish craft and design, Danish Crafts Collection CC16. For the first time in the history of Danish Crafts’ collections, all the products in this annual collection are brand-new. The collection contains 23 new products, which will be launched at Maison&Objet in Paris this autumn. Twenty-three products characterized by outstanding design and quality, most of them handmade and – in keeping with tradition – made in Denmark.
As another common characteristic, many of the products in this year’s collection contain references to familiar things. Traditional and contemporary features are mixed, often in one and the same product, and thus the collection suggests an interpretation of culture and history.
The craft renaissance that we are currently witnessing makes these products attractive to buyers and the press, because they are unique, handmade and – in keeping with the tradition for Danish design products – made in Denmark. In a global world where everything looks increasingly similar, and where the same products, brands and chains are found all over the world, the uniqueness that craft represents becomes a sought-after quality, says Curator Nina Tolstrup.
