Asger Jorn’s Liberation Painting
75 years ago, a Danish radio announcer could present the happy news that the German troops occupying Denmark had surrendered, and the country was once again a free nation.

Poul Kjærholm's Breakthrough
Usually, architects create their masterpieces during their careers, but Kjærholm struck gold right out of the gate with his steel and flag halyard chair "PK 25". He designed it in 1951 as part of his final project at the Danish School of Arts and Crafts, and at the summer's design auction in Copenhagen, we have two of the very first examples of the chair.
