Adorno is pleased to present “DANISH PREDICTIONS”, a virtual group show bringing twenty Danish designer-makers to New York in a new format. The exhibition, curated by designer and curator Pil Bredahl, will be virtually presented on a rooftop high above the streets of an imagined Manhattan overgrown by nature. We invite the audience to navigate through the scenography, exploring how new Danish design and craftsmanship predicts and analyses societal trends and values through artistic expression. Through their practices, the participating makers have contemplated how society shapes their work and how their work can shape society.

“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. The Danish designers selected for ´Danish Predictions´ all work with creative making as a tool to physically manifest and predict future scenarios, told through form, material, and color.”
– Curator, Pil Bredahl

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.
