As Denmark’s national design centre, it is our mission to promote the use of design in business and industry, to help professionalise the design industry and to document, promote and brand Danish design in Denmark and abroad.
We do this by teaching public and private companies and organisations how to use design to develop innovative products and services that contribute to growth and welfare. We match the companies and organisations with the right people, and train them in design methods and tools. Finally, we collect and share knowledge about design and the value it creates in Denmark and the world.
Every year, we collaborate with more than 2,000 business leaders, designers and decision makers, and we can see that our efforts are paying off:
- Companies that work with design see an average of 32% growth on the bottom line and 56% higher return for shareholders
- For every 1 kr. the state invests in the Danish Design Centre, we create a value of 5. kr
- 67% of companies that work with design find that design increases their competitiveness.
We work in areas such as cities, welfare, tech and much more. See all our ongoing projects here.
