The Museum’s Director Anne-Louise Sommer explains the Danish tradition of excellent design to be, “…a tradition with a democratic perspective on human beings’ basic need to surround themselves with good design and beautiful craftsmanship that has prevailed throughout centuries.”

Since 1926, the museum is found in one of Copenhagen’s finest Rococo buildings, and the former Royal Frederik’s Hospital. The building was constructed during the reign of King Frederik V in the years 1752-57 based on drawings by the architects Nicolai Eigtved and Lauritz de Thurah. In the 1920s, the buildings were renovated and adapted to museum use by the architects Ivar Bentsen and Kaare Klint.
