Welcome to the Designmuseum's Library
The Designmuseum’s library is the largest in the Nordic countries within the area of design and crafts. It is public and open free to everyone, and is a museum library, research library, and a main subject library within the Danish library system.
The library’s goal is to make accessible knowledge, information, and documentation about crafts and industrial design. The library aims to inspire development with design and be a source of research in the areas of design and art history.
