Radical innovations require experimental space and freedom. Estranged from the known, explore the unknown. Combine the learning and expertise into creativeness that evolves as the new otherness. 

Collaborations between the industry, institutions and creative individuals have been part of a long-standing tradition in Switzerland.

Danish Design - Contexts, Materiality, Culture and Society
The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design
-
Danish design is famed for its ability to design products, services and spaces with a double contextual awareness. While taking its point of departure in an understanding of materials and spaces, it is also embedded in its societal and cultural, even political surroundings. The awareness is part of both the Danish design tradition and contemporary Danish design; as can be seen at this event, and in the work of students of KADK.
