British designer Jasper Morrison has curated Designmuseum Danmark's spring exhibition, Danish Design - I like it!, which opens tomorrow and runs until October. A selection of objects from the museum's collection, hand-picked by Morrison, will be shown together with the aim of presenting Danish design in an international context.

Bang & Olufsen Beolit radio by Jacob Jensen (1970)

Morrison explains his fascination with the subject: "I am preoccupied by the beauty as well as the quality of Danish design – this means both its physical and its aesthetic qualities. The shapes represent the humane and the generous, which to me symbolizes Danish design."

Poul Kjærholm (1963)

Morrison is also designing the exhibition space and will be using Hallingdal, a textile designed in 1965 by Danish designer Nanna Ditzel, and produced by Kvadrat.

Danish Design - I like it! will be on at Designmuseum Danmark, Bredgade 68 / 1260 København K, until 2 October 2011.
