Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, is recognized as the world’s happiest city and boasts the best welfare system in Northern Europe. The city is brimming with a spirit of community that trades in fierce competition for active and free discourse. This galvanized exchange of ideas has resulted in a highly creative culture that is fueled by true collaboration.
As the pivotal center of the Danish modern aesthetic since the 1950s, Copenhagen remains an iconic powerhouse in the Nordic region, particularly as a pioneer in furniture, architectural, and daily product design.
