Marked annually on 8th March, International Women's Day has been celebrated worldwide for over a century, with the first official gathering held in 1911. To celebrate this important cause, we highlight just some of the incredible female talent at Cult, from mid-century pioneer Bodil Kjaer to modern-day trailblazer Ilse Crawford.
This year marks the 150th anniversary of legendary Danish design brand Fritz Hansen. In collaboration with visionary designers such as Arne Jacobsen, Poul Kjærholm and Hans J. Wegner, Fritz Hansen has shaped the Danish design tradition with iconic designs such as the Egg chair and Series 7 chair.
To celebrate Hans J. Wegner's enduring legacy and more than 70 years of collaboration, Carl Hansen & Son have partnered up with acclaimed London-based designer, Ilse Crawford, to develop a new colour palette for a limited-edition release of the first chairs that Wegner created for Carl Hansen & Son in 1950.
On his 102nd anniversary, we celebrate the legacy of the great Jørn Utzon - the renowned Danish designer who, in 1957, was announced winner of the international competition to design a ‘national opera house’ for Sydney’s Bennelong Point. His vision for a sculptural, curved building on the Harbour broke radically with the rectangular shapes of modernist architecture and ultimately transformed his career.
In 1956, Danish master Arne Jacobsen was given the opportunity to build ‘the world’s first design hotel’ - the twenty-two storey SAS Royal Hotel, Copenhagen - known all over the world as the hotel in which the architect designed every detail. For this masterpiece, Jacobsen collaborated with Fritz Hansen, designing some of the most iconic furniture of his career.
2019 is a big year of celebration for Vipp. It’s been 80 years since Marie asked Holger to craft a sturdy pedal bin for her new hairdressing salon, a question that marked the beginning of the future for the Danish design brand that has a story deep-rooted in history.
