Brief & Concept

Tingenes Tilstand (The State of Things) is a design exhibition about objects and their stories. A group of fresh and exciting designers show furniture and products, developed based on a given design brief, resulting in a wide variety of interpretations of the same theme.

Objects attract and inspire us.
They tell stories,
evoke emotions, they make us curious,
and they fascinate us.
Our experiences are related to associations
and memories,
to colors and shapes,
or function and materiality.
It can be complex and impressive,
or simple and subtle.

The designers were given a box with carefully selected everyday objects, and were challenged to design a product or piece of furniture inspired by the box and its content. They could interpret the collection however they wanted; and the inspiration could be abstract and conceptual, or based on materials, surfaces, shapes - or something completely different.

Big thanks
