Material Matters


Three days in September you can experience an installation created in collaboration between 17 Danish design and furniture brands as well as the organization Danish Wood and Furniture Industries.

The exhibition is curated by the team behind the magazine Ark Magazine.

The design exhibition invites visitors to delve further into the stories of surfaces, textures, properties, durability, sustainability and expression in a comprehensive material library.

Material Matters has invited several young designers and artists, who are thinking about how materials can influence the design concepts of the future.

The exhibiting furniture companies are a mix of well-known, established brands and smaller or new companies, all working together to create a familiar and extraordinary experience.

It is a pleasure for the third time to facilitate a joint exhibition – and a great pleasure to collaborate with such reliable partners: 17 visionary furniture brands and Ark Journal. The goal has again been to create spaces where guests feel challenged, welcomed and inspired. Material Matters is not intended as a static installation; we created the exhibition to interact with our visitors and allow them to experience why it is genuinely real that “Material Matters”.
