At The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design (KADK) we are targeting the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals for the next three years. Within a large individual margin, we are educating designers to develop new products, solutions and strategies that support the UN’s ambition for a healthier, greener and more equal world. We are seeking LØSNINGER, meaning new solutions.
Curated among more than 300 graduate projects in 2017, KADK presents 22 newly graduates, showing creative and innovative solutions for a more sustainable world.
As a new and challenging exhibition window, the showcased products explore a wide range of material use and methods. You can see furniture inspired by the folklore aesthetics of two different cultures, trying to bridge cultures through design; ceramics produced with alternative crafting methods by combining clay and 3D printing; clothing that focuses on sustainability in terms of both materials and aesthetics; fish skin used as furnishing fabric; and much more. All projects are rethinking design, aiming at a future with more sustainable production processes and products that will change people’s view of design. We believe that design can make changes and lead us towards a better, more sustainable way of life.
