In this talk, architect and tv-presenter, Ane Cortzen, confront the CEO’s behind some of the greatest designicons in history, on how to deal with the proud legacy in this day and era. Does the classics cast such a long shadow, that it’s hard to launch new products? Or is it actually a great advantage to stand on the shoulders of giants? Cortzen and the panel will also touch on how to update a legacy which mainly is based on handmade carpentry in a time of spare resources and completely different production-lines.
