Danish Design? Jasper Morrison likes It!
The world-famous British designer Jasper Morrison has always been fascinated by Danish design and currently curates and stages an exhibition on Danish design at Designmuseum Danmark.
Jasper Morrison has handpicked his favourites from Designmuseum Danmark’s vast collection, and quite fittingly the exhibition is called “Danish Design – I like It!”.
Beauty and Quality
“I am preoccupied by the beauty as well as the quality of Danish design – this means both its physical and its aesthetic qualities. The shapes represent the humane and the generous, which to me symbolizes Danish design,” states the British designer, Jasper Morrison.
The interior of the exhibition is constructed with Jasper Morrison’s favourite textile, Hallingdal, designed by Nanna Ditzel in 1965 and produced by Kvadrat.

Jasper Morrison is known as the main exponent of the new minimalist-functionalist design wave, and with his underplayed and rational style he has much in common with the Danish design heritage.
Designmuseum Danmark is Denmark’s national museum for design and contains the world’s largest collection and documentation of Danish design.
Designmuseum Danmark shows a historical exhibition on the creation and production of the Hallingdal textile from Kvadrat.
