Danish Modern: Design for Living
Danish Modern: Design for Living Description:
Sleek, stylish, and still popular after half a century – Danish Modern furniture and home décor continues to inspire. “Danish Modern: Design for Living” celebrates the icons of Danish mid-century design, and explores the ways in which Americans were introduced to this style through advertisements, exhibitions, Hollywood films, and even through presidential debates! Full-color photos offer a visual introduction to the furniture and housewares of the period. Essays by scholars of Scandinavian design and culture place the pieces in context as a global style, but one that still holds a cherished place in the lives and homes of millions of people.
Published by the Museum of Danish America in 2013 in celebration of the museum’s 30th anniversary.A related exhibition toured to four museums across the United States.
