Four design talents were in December 2015 crowned as winners of a talent development program organized by the Innovation Network Lifestyle – Interior & Clothing. The goal was to provide matchmaking between Danish design schools talents and renowned Danish furniture companies.
16 students were matched with four selected companies: Frandsen Group, Carl Hansen & Son, Bo Concept and Andersen Furniture and a group of four students from respectively Kolding School of Design, VIA Design, Aarhus School of Architecture and School of Design who won the program after creating an idea for a new product for Andersen Furniture.
All collaborations have resulted in tangible opportunities for new products and concepts that come into production. The program has been so successful that a new round is started next year.
