Made in Denmark

Exhibition at Glass Museum Riihimäki, Finland [Suomen Lasi Museum], 15.2.–21.4.2019

Since the GRASSI Museum was opened in 1874, Danish arts and crafts have played an important role there. Even the oldest collections of the museum include contemporary ceramics from Denmark. In the course of roughly 140 years since then, the inventory increased a lot in several stages. In particular the last few years saw the addition of many pieces – including entire collections.

In light of this, the idea for the exhibition MADE IN DENMARK was created. It shows a multi-faceted image of the development of Danish design since about 1900.

Most of the pieces exhibited here are connected by their mix of a certain aesthetic restraint and love for a high quality of design and craftsmanship. This applies to individual pieces of precious materials as well as to serially produced goods of steel and plastics.

The exhibition is made in cooperation with the GRASSI Museum of Applied Arts, Leipzig, Germany.
