Factsheet Denmark

Ever wonder what the Danes officially consider the most representative pieces of furniture from their classic designs of the 1950s and 1960s and into the present? In 2008 the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark issued a publication called Factsheet Denmark which listed their most important designers. The publication also included images of pieces of furniture that the Ministry believed to reflect Danish society. Many you could easily guess, while some might surprise you. One of their furniture choices certainly surprised me, and I bet it won't be hard for you to figure out which one...especially when they had so many beautiful examples to choose from.
