Detail of ‘Poet’s Book Hanger’ by Jakob Jørgensen for Danish Crafts
A clever and relatively less space-demanding alternative to traditional bookshelves and cabinets, this neat book hanger has been devised by a Copenhagen-based furniture designer Jakob Jørgensen. Composed of a plain wooden mounting and a number of ‘sticks’ which can also double as bookmarks, ‘Poet’s Book Hanger’ was developed for Danish Crafts‘ MINDCRAFT12 exhibition which was organised on the occasion of Milan’s Salone del Mobile 2012 fair and showcased 16 new works by 12 contemporary Danish artists and designers.

Born to a Swedish mother and Danish father, the Copenhagen-based designer Christina Liljenberg Halstrøm‘s designs are characterised by the quintessentially Scandinavian simplicity, lightness of form and effortlessly casual flair. Now, following her Gym the Luxe, Beddo and Norr projects, all of which feature a sombre, minimalist colour palette limited to charcoal grey and natural wood hues, she has created this equally reduced stool named after designer’s eldest son, Georg. The four-legged ash wood and wool stool was developed for Danish Crafts‘ MINDCRAFT12 exhibition which was organised on the occasion of Milan’s Salone del Mobile 2012 fair and showcased 16 new works by 12 contemporary Danish artists and designers.

'Tool boxes' by Line Depping
For the fourth time the Danish association for the support of craft and design will present a selection of works during the Salone del Mobile in Milan. This year the Copenhagen based designer takes over from Karen Kjærgaard, who curated and designed the three previous exhibitions.
“”MINDCRAFT11 will be based on the terms that I consider eternal and essential in relation to quality craft and design: Quality, Functionality, Materiality”, Ceclie Manz explains – principles that we can actually see in this year’s selection and in her own works, too.
