Do you miss the magic that occurs when an idea materializes between your hands and becomes reality? Are you looking for a place to use your hands as well as your head in everyday life? Where learning new skills is driven by your creative urge? Do you have a head full of ideas that you long to turn into reality? Or are you dreaming of learning how to even come up with an idea? Do you love to build things? Are you curious about the world and everything we surround ourselves with in our everyday lives? Do you want to reach the core of your creative potential andshow it full attention? Or are you yearning to contribute to solving some of the challenges the world is facing today?
At Furniture, Interior & Product design we are curious about the world, each other,and everything surrounding us. We think about sustainability – universally and at a human level. We need to look after our planet and look out for each other through mutual respect. We strive to propose assignments that will challenge you regardless of your initial qualifications when you attend DSDH. You will learn to develop and visualize your ideas – with pen and paper, in the foundry, and in our well-equipped woodshop. We emphasize the practical side of the profession as highly as the conceptual and you will spend a considerable amount of time in our workshops with rich opportunity to work and try out various techniques and tools – everything you are going to need if you are considering applying to one of the architectural or design-related educations in Denmark. And by the time you leave us you will have learned how to make presentation material that stands out so that your portfolio sparkles and will strike up interest.
