On August 20, the American ambassador to Denmark, Mr. Rufus Gifford, visited the House of Industry in Copenhagen to attend a conference. With him was a camera crew from Danish Broadcasting Corporation, who follows the ambassador through some working days in order to make a documentary.

Heading into the House of Industry, Ambassador Gifford had the opportunity to see the furniture exhibition Images of Danish Furniture, and he was very interested in hearing about the ideas behind the exhibition and to test several of the exhibited pieces of furniture.
