DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The Danish chair

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Exhibition

INSPIRATION:
For many years, Designmuseum Danmark had wanted to display some of its enormous stored collection of chairs as part of its permanent exhibition. To tell the story of Danish design through the chair. The museum asked the designer Boris Berlin to come up with a solution that showed a representative range of the collection. It was important to create a different space of curiosity and reflection.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Danish Chair is a wunderkammer of chairs. In the exhibition, Designmuseum Danmark tells the story of how Danish design turned into an international mega-brand. Guests can embark on a scenic journey of the many types of chairs, which draw a picture of the 20th-century Danish success story and export adventure known as Danish Modern.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Visitors enter the exhibition at the intro room, where the typology of chairs is explained. Then passing through the strip curtain, the visitors enter the tunnel. The light is dimmed, chairs stand in their translucent boxes lit diffusely from behind. The chairs are sleeping, and the visitor has the sense of entering the archives. The lights progressively come on and the chairs wake up, before falling back to sleep as visitors move. There is also the sliding panels with info.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The exhibition opened in December 2016 and is a permanent exhibition at Designmuseum Danmark.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The black netting textile ceiling conceals all electric communications. All electric cables and three rows of LED light tubes are mounted on the steel structure, hidden behind the back wall of the display box, creating the diffused dimmed background light. In each display box are mounted two adjustable spots that ensure the right light set up for each chair. These spotlights are being switched on by the movement sensors. Between the boxes is mounted vertical drawer with an information panel.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
110 vacuum-formed in translucent white acrylic boxes HXWXD 117X110X950 cm, framed with ash profiles, are mounted on three levels into the structure made of rectangular steel profiles. This 2x25 m long structure on both sides of the museums gallery is connected under the ceiling in one big construction that stays independently in the protected historical building without touching its walls and ceiling, just staying on the original museums marble floor.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:

How to serve visitors the enormous quantity of concentrated information, without overfeeding. How to display the exhibited design masterpieces, not compromising the experience of wholeness.

Designmuseum Danmark

PROFILE:
Since 1926, Designmuseum Danmark has been housed in one of Copenhagen’s finest rococo buildings, the former Royal Frederik’s Hospital. The building was constructed during the reign of King Frederik V in the years 1752-57 based on drawings by the architects Nicolai Eigtved and Lauritz de Thurah. In the 1920s, the buildings were renovated and adapted to museum use by the architects Ivar Bentsen and Kaare Klint. Kaare Klint (1888-1954) furnishes the museum and he designs its entire inventory en the late 1920s. Known as the grand old man of Danish furniture design, he has a decisive influence on Danish design. Kaare Klint lived and worked at the museum and also served as a teacher for several of the best-known Danish architects and designers of the 20th century. As a lecturer at the School of Furniture Design and Interior Decoration at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Kaare Klint was known for his extensive analytic examination of spatiality. Today the museum’s buildings are known as the finest example of Kaare Klint’s work with function and tradition.
