Thorvaldsen website as Danish design icon

The book "101 danske designikoner" (101 Danish design icons) turns the focus on everyday design at its best – from the PH lamp and Post Danmark’s red post boxes through the Margrethe Mixing Bowl and Arne Jacobsen’s chair the Egg to Thorvaldsens Museum’s learning site


The book has been written by 32 of Denmark’s best design researchers and communicators, and is addressed to everyone who takes an interest in Danish design. In a direct, transparent form it presents the reader with a wealth of the design icons that in various ways have won a place amidst the daily life of the Danes. Thorvaldsens Museum’s educational site has been included because of the innovative logic of its information architecture and because the pupils’ own interpretations of the art in the museum means that Tilbygningen is constantly developing.
