50th anniversary

Beyond Icons

August 9, 2017

“Beyond Icons“, the Design School Kolding’s 50th Anniversary Exhibition at the Museum at Koldinghus in Denmark exemplifies how design creates, affects and moves our lives. Lower East paid the excellent and very interesting exhibition a summer visit.

“Beyond Icons” celebrates the anniversary “by going behind the well-known design icons and focusing on the human factor in design, on the designer’s as well as the user’s experiences, emotions and attitudes. The graduation projects submitted by this year’s new designers are presented alongside 50 user perspectives on design. The 50 “guest curators,” who are all well-known public figures, have chosen designs that make a difference either to people, to the environment or to an industry, although we are seldom aware of it.“ – tells the school’s website.

We recommend to go experience the exhibition – on show until October 22th, 2017.
Find more info at the Design School Kolding’s website and at the Koldinghus website.
