Practice Makes Perfect

In 1920, Denmark’s first public hospital, the King Frederik Hospital, was converted into the building that now houses the Designmuseum. Kaare Klint (1888-1954), the forefather of minimalist furniture design movement Danish Modern, was the architect who oversaw the restoration process both outside and in, kitting the museum with handcrafted display cases and furniture. Practice Makes Perfect considers the importance of Klint’s advocacy of craft, and the impact it had on designers under his tutelage at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts.
