From furniture to silver, ceramics, fashion, textiles and digital design: Designmuseum Danmark’s extensive collections include crafts and art and industrial design from all over the Western world, and covers the period from the late Middle Ages to today. Our beautiful collection from East Asia, primarily Japan and China, contains items from prehistoric times until the present.
Only a small percentage of the collections are on display. We are working on making the collections digitally accessible over the next few years. During the next decade, we will be focusing on collecting and documenting design and crafts from roughly 1900 until today. Below you can get a taste of the categories in our object collections.
