In Denmark we are very proud of our traditions within furniture design. Great designers like Børge Mogensen, Finn Juhl, Arne Jacobsen and Hans Jørgen Wegner made Danish furniture design famous by its clean, minimalistic and simple design.
For a very long time Danish furniture design has been recognized by these heroes, and made it difficult for upcoming furniture designers to break through. But for the last couple of years the Danish furniture design has developed, and is now concentrated on long-living traditions, crafted in a contemporary world. Furniture design is of course primary an aesthetical experience, but the craftsmanship behind furniture design is really in focus these days. The increased focus on global warming, and green environment has indeed spread into all kinds of business and craftsmanship. Furniture design is no exception, and today we see an enlarged focus on sustainability in the crafting process. At CPHmade, we are very pleased to have members on board that are concerned about the environment, and craft furniture designs from a sustainable point of view.
