KADK students exhibiting at this year’s edition of Ventura Lambrate

Education and students

Under the theme „Morphology“ KADK is celebrating this year’s 100th anniversary of the Danish designers Hans J. Wegner and Børge Mogensen. Inspired by the works of Mogensen and Wegner, students from the School of Architecture and School of Design, were teamed up and asked to combine the traditional stick-chair with upholstery in order to „morph“ the stick-chair into a contemporary expression.

Head of Institute Mathilde Aggebo: „The exhibition offers us an ideal opportunity to show the international design world that in Copenhagen and Denmark, we have built a strong research and education environment within the field of furniture design and architecture, where knowledge, talent and business join forces to meet the challenges of the future.”

In Milan, students from the School of Architecture and the School of Design will present the “Morphology” project, an intense 10-week course where researchers, architects, designers and graphic designers have worked together developing the chairs as well as the exhibition’s design for the furniture fair.

To promote the Danish pool of talent, KADK exhibits together with TEKO and the School of Architecture Aarhus under the title „Danish Made“. „Morphology“ is created in collaboration with Kvadrat and the Innonet Lifestyle – Interior & Clothing. Check out the student’s project-website.
