Copenhagen Design Week

Copenhagen Design Week
Scritto da Redazione The Plan -
From Thursday 1st September to Tuesday 6th September, much of Copenhagen will be buzzing with design events and debates that will focus on Danish design and design solutions under the theme, “Think Human”.
The theme “Think Human” makes Copenhagen Design Week different from the other international design weeks. Denmark has a unique approach to design and design solutions, which other countries can learn from for both local and global challenges.This is why Copenhagen Design Week 2011 has chosen a theme reflecting the humanist tradition that invites politicians, planners, designers and architects to put the user, the individual, and the human being at the centre of their thinking.
The week’s conferences and specialist arrangements go deeper by focusing on “Think Human” in relation to architecture, sustainability, design process, choice of materials, production methods, and not least the sensory experience of the consumer or citizen. So Copenhagen Design Week is about much more than just seeing new design in Copenhagen.
Copenhagen Design Week brings together activities from the world’s biggest design award, INDEX, to specialist arrangements from the Danish Design Centre (DDC), the Danish Design Association (DDA), the Danish Architecture Centre (DAC), the Danish Design Museum, Copenhagen Business School, design and architecture schools, etc.
At the heart of the week will be a special “Think Human” design zone on the pier where Ophelia Beach is open every summer next to the Royal Danish Playhouse. The zone will have exhibitions, a press centre, an information point, and recreation areas. You will be able to see exhibitions and architectural installations, get export advice from the Foreign Ministry’s local representatives, and hear international speakers on how the humanist way of thinking can make a difference in a world that needs change.
