Origin to Icon: Exploring Danish Design

Exhibition in the Corcoran Gallery of Art's Gallery 31, the College's FREE exhibition space (entrance on New York Avenue). Reception will be held on Thursday, December 16 from 6–8 p.m.

Origin to Icon: Exploring Danish Design will explore the correlation between design inspiration and design outcome. Examples of iconic Danish designs will be showcased in juxtaposition to the elements that motivated their designers to create them. This relationship will celebrate and reinforce the Danish approach to design, popularized in the 1950s and 1960s, which is still evident in today’s designs from Denmark. From these comparisons, the visitor will generate new appreciations for design, especially Danish design and the attributes of beauty, functionality, and simplicity, each united to form a singular design solution espoused and achieved by Denmark’s most renowned designers.  For more information, please visit http://programs.corcoran.org/products/origin-to-icon-danish-design-exposed
