The Danish design: essential, functional, original and minimalist.
The Danish design, famous all over the world, is characterized by a “timeless” modern, welcoming, but very functional style that is always able to satisfy all the user’s needs. Simplicity, purity and attention to detail are the main features of Danish furniture.
The Danish design cult began thanks to interior designer Arne Jacobsen in the 1960s and has since made its way into many European and Italian homes.
Arne Jacobsen was one of the greatest designers of the century and, to this day, his fame in this field surpasses that of building architect. Famous was his production of chairs. This work began with a fruitful relationship with the Danish company Fritz Hansen in the early postwar period, producing the well-known 7 series.
His revolutionary ideas and avant-garde mentality have influenced the evolution of design and architecture. Through Arne Jacobsen in particular, Danish design became known worldwide and contributed to the birth of Scandinavian, scandi-chic and hygge design.

Another feature of Danish style is sustainability; in fact, Danish style at the forefront of the use of new materials is focusing more and more on ecology over the years, with a view to design that is sustainable over time and aware of new climate and environmental emergencies.
