Outdoors visitors can explore study projects, designed specifically for the trade fair by the 45 students from the three master programmes at the Institute of Architecture and Design. Furniture students have created individual seats in rattan, students of architectural lighting design are presenting large-scale lighting fixtures and the students from the Spatial Design, Perception and Detail programme have been responsible for the graphics and design of the exhibition, including a huge textile façade, measuring 3 x 3 x 10 metres, in collaboration with Danish architect Dorte Mandrup.
Indoors: fashion, computer games, children’s prostheses and co-design
Indoors: Meet 36 projects selected from the work of recent graduate designers. Many of the projects are already in production, are prize winners or, in some other way, show the cutting edge of the School of Design’s graduate work. The exhibition will include award-winning Danish game design, prosthetics for children and a wheelchair that can be mounted on skis, designed for the Danish Sitski Olympic athlete, Ulrik Nyvold. Flexible LED lighting, Scandinavian production design, new banknotes and learning campaigns aimed at drone attacks.
