The Danish Design Award 2021 celebrates the difference that design can make across industries.
“It is fantastic to feel the enthusiasm for the Danish Design Award this year - we have received 28 more nominations than last year from all over the world. Now I look forward to getting started with reviewing them all in collaboration with our talented jury, ” says program manager for the Danish Design Award, Christina Melander.
The jury includes Tue Mantoni, investor and advisor, Lene Tanggaard, principal and professor at the Design School Kolding, and Simon Boas, senior director of communication and sustainability at Carlsberg Group.
For several years before we created Opløft, we'd been aware of a gap in the market for a platform that was not only slim, relatively lightweight and fairly easy to move about, but also strong and stable enough to support a full single or dual-monitor set-up. Existing sit-stand desks were typically quite cumbersome and difficult to manoeuvre. They were placed on top of a desk and that's where they stayed. We wanted a platform that could be moved from desk to desk, or room to room. Homeworking was really kicking off and we wanted to design a platform that could fit into the home aesthetically, as well a functionally.
The finalists will be announced on May 24, 2021.
