Abstract:

Exhibitor in the 2nd international Copenhagen Design Week was held in Copenhagen from 1st to 6th September 2011.

With the theme "Think Human", Copenhagen Design Week showed the DNA in Danish design thinking; formed and founded by the Danish human tradition that descends from our constitution and our democratic society. The human tradition has for decades been the basis for Danish product design, e.g. the well-known furniture architects of the 1950's and is now a driving force for the role of the designer in a complex world. The programme demonstrated how design can contribute solving both local and global challenges – in relation to the indvididual, the society and globally.

Copenhagen Design Week brought together activities from the world's largest design award: INDEX:Award to exhibitions and conferences showing Copenhagen as a living lab of sustainable urban development. The week offered an exciting programme with exhibitions, conferences, talks, guided architecture tours etc. – all in a "Think Human" context.
