Danish Design: From spaceship toilets to thieves that steal chairs


Danish design is world-famous, and rightfully so: Danes are really passionate about making useful things beautiful. But the smooth, clean lines of modern Danish design are a relatively new invention.

Meanwhile, modern Danish design is so popular that thieves are probably planning right now to steal your Arne Jacobsen chairs.
