In the six programs, five talented furniture designers will try to create Denmark’s next classic – and they will get their case in the first section, where we start with one of the big challenges; the dining table chair!
Host Mette Bluhme Rieck manages the battle, while the two judges Anne-Louise Sommer and Kasper Salto are ready to judge the works. The designers are pushed to the limit during the just three weeks they have to make the chair, but eventually also show in the best way why Denmark is known throughout the world for our beautiful design.
Salto & Sigsgaard, work is finished at The New Carlsberg foundation in Copenhagen. Together with Onecollection we have
created new types of storage for different types of art; paintings and books, sculptures and textiles.
We also designed a new meeting table to stand with our Council chairs, that was originally designed for the TC chamber in the HQ
of the United Nations in NY.

We have just returned from Designers Saturday in Oslo after the Norwegian launch of the new MOTION chair,
designed for the Norwegian company VARIER. They have some of the market leaders in ergonomic chairs,
– and now they hopefully get a new one that can prevent us from bad sitting habits.
We are proud to be a part of this good and exciting company, see more at saltosigsgaard.com
I became a member of the Danish Design Council last year, very honoured.
16-24. of October 2015, the Design council had a very exiting trip to Japan in , visiting Sony design development, Hitaschi, Nintendo,
Nippon Design company and also a very fine pottery in Kyoto. Really interesting to visit Japan in this way,
and come closer to the Japanese way of making things!
