For eight consecutive years MINDCRAFT has presented the very best of Danish craft and design in Milan. But this is the first time that the exhibition will be shown in Denmark.

This year, the exhibition has been curated by the Danish-Italian design duo, GamFratesi. During the Milan Design Week, it was awarded the prestigious Milano Design Award.

GamFratesi have based the exhibition concept on the gap between mind and craft, adding an exhibition theme, which they call “In Between”. They focus on the field of tension in between mind and craft: from conceptual to craft-oriented design.

“Over the years, the MINDCRAFT exhibitions in Milan have generated major international attention in the design industry, and for a long time there has been a desire to show MINDCRAFT in Denmark. So we are delighted that the Danish audience now has an opportunity to see the exhibition at Designmuseum Danmark,” says Astrid Krogh, Chair of the Danish Arts Foundation’s Committee for Crafts and Design Project Funding.

The MINDCRAFT exhibition will give you an opportunity to see 14 new works from 19 of Denmark’s leading designers and craftspeople, and to explore what Design Museum Denmark calls a dramatic stage set that adds an entirely new dimension to the interior of the museum.
