By the 1970’s, rapidly changing tastes in America diminished the importance of Danish Modern, and sales - which had built steadily into the 1960’s - began to decline. A renaissance occurred by the 1990’s, however, and today Danish Modern furniture is not only back in vogue but commanding astronomical prices. Still, it has been difficult for new designers to overcome the towering reputations of figures such as Jacobsen, Juhl, and Wegner. More than half a century later, their designs continue to define the qualities of Danish Modern that spoke so strongly to American tastes in the last century. This exhibition presented some of the greatest of designers and their designs. Richly illustrated with text by three experts in the field.

Danish Modern explores the development of mid-century modernist design in Denmark from historical, analytical and theoretical perspectives. Mark Mussari explores the relationship between Danish design aesthetics and the theoretical and cultural impact of Modernism, particularly between 1930 and 1960. He considers how Danish designers responded to early Modernist currents: the Stockholm Exhibition of 1930, their rejection of Bauhaus aesthetic demands, their early fealty to wood and materials, and the tension between cabinetmaker craft and industrial production as it challenged and altered their aesthetic approach. Tracing the theoretical foundations for these developments, Mussari discusses the writings and works of such figures as Poul Henningsen, Arne Jacobsen, Hans Wegner, Nanna Ditzel, and Finn Juhl.
