The Danish Chair

Inspired by an exhibition at the Design Museum in Copenhagen, I took on a personal project researching mid-century Danish design. The result – a series of three animated videos and a website celebrating some of the most well-known Danish furniture designers and their work.

Countless hours of research went into this project – I had a lot of fun collecting and condensing piles of information on mid-century furniture design. But why do I find old Danish chairs so interesting? Perhaps it’s because a lot of them still look as modern today as they did 70 years ago.

Working with a limited colour scheme was challenging but rewarding. Contrasts of colour, lighting, and shape highlight what’s important. And just like mid-century Danish design itself, the compositions are pared-down and functional.
