Bringing together the best Nordic design galleries, emerging design studios, and a curated exhibition of young talents, CHART Design
presents an ambitious programme that focuses on contemporary collectible design across the Nordic region. An extensive talks programme will engage professionals, practitioners, and a dedicated public to discuss and explore the present and future of the Nordic design scene.
Focusing exclusively on unique contemporary works, limited edition pieces, and collectibles, CHART Design brings together established designers and emerging talents whose practices and originality contribute to the development of the Nordic design scene. Highlighting both internationally esteemed practitioners as well as local talents, CHART Design presents a unified entry point to the Nordic scene for collectible design.
CHART is the leading Nordic event for art, design, and architecture, taking place at two historical venues in the centre of Copenhagen: The Royal Academy of Fine Arts and Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art. Design has been an integrated part of CHART for several years and in 2018 CHART launched a design fair and a curated programme in its own right. This year CHART Design will focus exclusively on contemporary practices and strengthen the engagement with emerging talents across the Nordic scene.
CHART Designs ambition is to create one entry point for collectible Nordic design. We have a strong design history across the Nordic countries and in recent years we have seen an extensive development within the field from a younger and increasingly cross-disciplinary generation. We want to stimulate this development by bringing together the different agents working within the field, ranging from gallerists and professionals over practicing artists, designers, and craft-makers to the collectors and the public. Nanna Hjortenberg, Director of CHART.
