D is for Danish

'Fonts and furniture' for sale at the Modern Danish Warehouse
Here's a date for your diary: The Modern Danish Warehouse pop-up shop is back for a second year from 5th - 20th March. 

 On sale will be vintage delights such as tables, chairs, sideboards, desks and sofas ranging in price from £100 - £1,500. This year there is a back to school theme with some original pieces by Arne Jacobsen for a school in Copenhagen which he designed. 
"It is still possible to get great pieces that were designed for schools in the 1950s and 1960s for a good price", says the pop-up's proprietor Nina Hertog. "It was a time when great efforts were made to make fantastic furniture, believing that the quality of your surroundings would improve learning and overall quality of life".
Let's just assume that a generation of Danish school kids haven't been left sitting on the floor...
This year also sees a collaboration with Copenhagen shop Playtype (a type foundry which is part of the Danish design agency e-Types). So if you are mad about type - like me - you can pick up t-shirts, coffee mugs, posters and decorative letters in Playtype's range of bespoke fonts.
