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.

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.
