The Mindcraft Project will launch a new digital exhibition highlighting 10 designers and studios from Denmark. The exhibition is designed by Wang & Söderström and led by Copenhagen Design Agency. The Mindcraft Project will present a new digital exhibition concept with explorative and experimental design from Denmark in a meeting between craft, art, architecture and technology. The 10 designers and studios have been selected for the exhibition with curatorial advice from a new Curator Advisory Board.
“We have appointed the curatorial board members based on their wide knowledge of the contemporary Danish design scene. They have great insights in areas covering furniture, craft, art, architecture, technology and innovation,” says Kristian Kastoft and Anders Kongskov, Co-directors of Copenhagen Design Agency.
The Mindcraft Project 2021 stretches across new digital fabrication methods and traditional refined craftsmanship.

In the upcoming exhibition, we will present projects that utilize new digital methods of designing and making alongside traditional craft disciplines in a cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary mix. The selected designers and studios are characterized by their experimental approaches, material knowledge and technical proficiency,” says Kastoft and Kongskov.
