Cluster for Studies in Danish Design

Short About Cluster for Studies in Danish Design

The research cluster for studies in Danish design (CDD) focuses on generating new insights into how the notions of 'Danish design' as an aesthetic and value-laden ideology and commercially important brand for Denmark has been shaped by particular historical events, cultural and market contingencies, and societal concerns and visions. Based on such insights CDD aims to contribute to a more nuanced contemporary understanding of 'Danish design', which should serve a springboard to the investigation of future scenarios for the impact of Danish design.
