Danish Crafts Collection
Danish Crafts Collection comprises Danish products within the field of interior design and accessories - both the classical and the more innovative. The collection is updated annually on the basis of a special selection undertaken by a professional curator. This ensures that the products featured are among the most modern and up-to-date, and that they have the same high quality that has always characterized Danish Design. There are about 25-30 professionals represented in Danish Crafts Collection.
