Copenhagen Design Week 2011 in main home furnishings  Category

Copenhagen Design Week, a collection of design events, talks, and exhibitions all over Copenhagen,was held September 1-6th, with the theme “Think Human.” Think Human is an expression of today, yet an old Danish design philosophy that has its roots in human-friendly solutions to product development. Code 11, an exhibition of (primarily) innovative Scandinavian interior design products states its priorities as: “design of high quality, peculiar ideas and crooked thoughts.” In this case, crooked = AMAZING!
