Adorno is pleased to present “DANISH PREDICTIONS”, a virtual group show bringing nineteen Danish designer-makers to New York in a new format. The exhibition, curated by Pil Bredahl, will be virtually presented on a rooftop high above the streets of an imagined Manhattan overgrown by nature. Not an entirely utopian utopia. A New York that is biodiverse, green, and full of natural spaces for shared cultural experiences. In this vision, we look at design objects that point to the important topics in our lives such as nature, our differences, and the uniqueness of creating. We invite the audience to navigate through this scenography, exploring how new Danish design and craftsmanship predicts and analyses societal trends and values through artistic expression.
“Collaboration, passion, and curiosity – this is what I want to investigate with the collection ´Danish Predictions´. The last years have shown us that there is no time for elusive and soulless creations. Designers must always be present and inventive to be able to come up with new ideas or new ways to make use of old ideas. And just as important, we must be present and inventive in order to sense life fully to be able to create and to be able to appreciate.”
– Pil Bredahl, collection curator
Use of biodegradable materials; generations working together; celebrating diversity; designers commenting on pollution as a consequence of modern consumption; use of classical handicraft methods and refining them through thousands of hours in the workshop in order to create modern expressive statements – these are some of the Danish Predictions that visitors can expect.
This collection was supported by THE DANISH ARTS FOUNDATION
