Let's discover a design for life with the latest major exhibition, Denmark Design in the swanky and ultra cool Auckland Art Gallery in the city at 11am. We can also go for lunch around 1pm in their sunny art gallery cafe.

Pioneering, practical and timeless – Danish design has consistently been at the forefront of the applied arts and is today considered a shorthand for modern living and the modern home.

Charting developments in Danish design from the 19th century until today, with a focus on the post-World War II period, Denmark Design presents over Protected content objects, from furniture to fabrics, graphic design to jewellery, and ceramics to toys. Through the icons of Danish design, the exhibition explores the makers, ideologies and social contexts from which some of the archetypes of modern domestic design developed.

The exhibition features iconic works, such as the ‘Egg’ chair, the ‘PH Artichoke’ light and the Lego brick.
