The little book about Danish design is for children and childlike souls. What was PH thinking when he designed his iconic lamps? Why is the Margrethe bowl a good design? And what exactly is design? These are some of the questions you get answers to in the book.
'The little book on Danish design' conveys the designers' work with problem, process and product at eye level with children. It is about aesthetics and beauty, but mostly about the joy of good craftsmanship, the love of the material and, in PH's words, "to dare and to play".
The book tells the story behind the good design that we all know and surround ourselves with. We come across both classics such as the iconic PH lamp, Royal Copenhagen frame and the Kay Bojesen monkey. The book is written in a language so that both young and old can participate.
Marie Hugsted is a trained textile designer and teacher, and has for many years communicated Danish design at home and abroad, as well as written teaching material about design for Designmuseum Danmark and Trapholt.
