Anders Byriel, CEO at Kvadrat, and Christina Strand represented Denmark at the “Danish Modern Design Revisited” seminar at MoMA. The seminar was based on a lecture by Penne Sparke.
Christina Strand and Anders Byriel both explained how they worked and perceived design followed by a panel discussion. One of the first topics treated how the Danish and Scandinavian traditions have been adopted by European design and how this involves a challenge for the Danish designers to stand out and create a new expression. The panel agreed that Danish design is currently sparkling with a broad spectre of fresh talents and new design studios.
