The Danish Design Centre offers exhibitions and information about Danish design to students and design professionals as well as to interested parties out to view an exhibition. Long-term displays like "Denmark by Design" (until May 2013) as well as more temporary ones illustrate what is meant by Danish design and how the world-famous aesthetic of function and form has affected everyday lives the world over. The glass-fronted building from 1999 was designed by internationally-renowned architect Henning Larsen and is a work of art in its own right; there's also a pleasant cafe and a shop, where small-scale design pieces can be bought to take home with you.
