This year, Danish Crafts, an organization aimed at branding and promoting Danish craft and design, is launching 31 new designs named Danish Crafts Collection 15, or CC15, at the Maison&Objet exhibition in Paris this week (Sept. 9-13 in Hal 7, stand H 176). In addition, one of Paris’ most famous department stores, Galeries Lafayette, will showcase three products from the collection during the fair.
In the official press release (link posted below), Danish Crafts says the designs are following the same line as Noma and the Danish fashion industry who are drawing on inspiration from the past and creating fresh new works based on classic Danish historical roots and traditions. This also includes the values of craftmanship and using natural materials.
The three designs on display at Galeries Lafayette are:
1) MeyerLavigne’s unique savings boxes “Need More – Think Twice”
2) The storage system “Colour Stack” by Henriette
3) The stool ”Granny” by Jonas Klein
Other designs to be featured at the exhibition are:
Bow-Wow Stool, Morten Emil Engel
Food Chain & Hunger, Hanne Louise Nielsen
Berry Sphere Necklace, Julie Bach
Folded Dish, Helene Søs Schjødts
Office Tools, Thomas Wagner
Acid Alice, Anders Arhøj
Dropvase, Bettina Schori
Danish Crafts will launch 31 fresh products in the new Danish Crafts Collection CC15 at Maison&Objet in Paris – one of the world’s leading design fairs for professional buyers and manufacturers. The collection is on display 9-13 September 2011.
