Danish design has always been ahead of the times, mixing functionality with simplicity and since then becoming iconic in the design world. The egg chair was a masterpiece by a Dane, as was the Sydney Opera House!
Let us take a look at 60 years of Danish furniture design and see what has changed from 1952 to now.
1950′s Danish Furniture Design
A late industrialisation in Denmark meant that the early 1950’s were a prime time for those in the design industry. Focus was mainly on furniture, although architecture was another key part of the trend.

Turkish design studio Autoban makes wood framing fashionable and shapely and here is their latest sofa with floating wood segments developed for De La Espada of Portugal. I think the Deco Sofa looks good from all sides but I especially like the back that hopefully won’t end up against a wall. Autoban will reveal the Deco sofa and a few other new furniture designs at this year’s London Design Festival.
