Danish designer Line Depping is nominated for the Nova Design Award at Formex in Stockholm. The award will go to a young designer working in the Nordic region. 
Line has run her own design studio in Copenhagen since 2007. She focuses particularly on material and works with wood which often includes other materials for contrast.
Motivation: “Line Depping has been nominated for the Nova Award 2014 for her self-explanatory and esthetically assured design. Her design is minimalistic and clearly rooted in a classic Scandinavian tradition; and while the same can be said of many other contemporary Nordic designers, very few of them achieve the same mastery as Line. At first glance her pieces may seem simple, but the more you get acquainted with them the more expressive and intriguing they grow.  To quote modernist Mies van der Rohe: “Less is more”.”
The other nominees are Hanna Dalrot/Sweden, Brynjar Siguroarson/Iceland, Vera & Kyte/Norway and Iina Vourivirta/Finland.
The jury consists of Pascale Cottard-Olsson, producer and gallery owner, Lotta Lewenhaupt, journalist and author, Kerstin Wickman, Professor of the History of Design, Louisa Hammarbäck, Editor-in-Chief, Plaza Interiör, and Christina Olsson, Event Manager for Formex. The guest jury member is designer Petrus Palmér.
Previous winners of the Formex Nova Design Award include Hanna Hedman and Simon Klenell from Sweden in 2011, Mari Isopahkala from Finland in 2012 and Mattias Stenberg from Sweden in 2013.
The Nova Design Award is organized in collaboration with interior design magazine Plaza Interiör and Gallery Pascale. The award is presented in conjunction with Formex’s design mingle at MOOD Stockholm on the night of Wednesday, August 13.

Hot off the press from +HALLE: Updated Capri Lounge and Capri Multi Chair designed by the Danish design duo busk+hertzog. The updated chairs  live up to +HALLE’s fundamental idea of “creating human spaces” in meeting areas and waiting areas around the world. E.g. offices, hotels and public spaces. “We know exactly where we are heading”, says Brand and Communication Director, Martin Halle. “We know exactly what we want with our furniture, so the addition of wood to our collection perfectly underlines our mission of providing furniture that adds warmth and personality to the surroundings”.

Danish design is so much more than the classic furniture from Wegner, Mogensen, Jacobsen etc. When I visited 3 Days of Design in Copenhagen last week, I came across a new Danish brand - Overgaard & Dyrman. Jasper Overgaard and Christian Dyrman are passionated craftsmen eager to show the world, that Danish design anno 2014 is all about traditional craftsmanship and modern technology. Their first collection, The Wire Collection, finds inspiration in traditional saddlery and metal work in a way that bridges the past with the present. Truly contemporary Danish design.

The Wire Collection consists of a Dining Chair, Lounge Chair, Lounge Sofa and a Coffee Table. Comes in a black coated steel frame or in a clear coated brushed steel frame with upholstery front made in leather, either Yellowstone or Elegance leather from Sorensen Leather. Each Wire Collection design in numbered. 

Young design brands and especially young talented designers deserve the best start - and Overgaard & Dyrman has got what it takes to make it. Great design, indisputable passion, a clear strategy and the talent to take it all the way.

Keep an eye out for them - and do get in touch with either Jasper or Christian if you want to sell the Wire Collection in your country. As for now, the collection is available in Denmark and Geneva, Switzerland.

Woodnwonder is a brand new Danish design company founded by Bente Hovendal, furniture maker, designer, earthwalker and sculptor. A couple of months ago I visited Bente’s workshop in Svendborg, Denmark, and saw the amazing wood (locally grown on Funen), cut  with Bente’s chainsaw and shaped and hand polished by Bente herself. Bente says she is “carried away into the power, accuracy and sound of the chainsaw”. Outcome is both tables (solid planks on equal footing with crooked legs), a day bed, log stools, shelves or simply stand-alone sculptures. 

The Woodnwonder collection is custom made to order. If you want to know what kind of time and money Bente needs to transform a piece of Danish wood into your Woodnwonder design, get in touch with her and start the dialogue. And don’t worry - she doesn’t alway carry her chainsaw ;)
