After three years with a view to the construction of Copenhagen’s new meeting place on the harbour front, the Danish Design Centre is now ready to move from Fæstningens Materialgård to BLOX. Monday, 12 March, is the first working day in the new offices, designed by Spacon & X.
The Danish Design Centre’s CEO, Christian Bason, is looking forward to moving to a more contemporary setting:
‘We are very excited about moving to BLOX and becoming part of the city’s new meeting place and venue for design, architecture and urban development. Since we sold the building at H.C. Andersens Boulevard three years ago, we have led a more secluded life, and we are looking forward to becoming a visible part of the city again. Design is also about visual and tactile qualities, and the new physical setting offers new possibilities for showcasing the difference that good design can make,’ says Christian Bason.
