Architecture & Design Faculty Wins Prestigious Design Show on Danish TV

Anders Engholm has won the television show ‘Danmark’s Næste Klassiker’ (‘Denmark’s Next Classic’), a furniture design competition where he competed against four other designers with the goal of creating Denmark’s next ‘classic’ design piece. Anders won with his sustainably designed stackable chair made from recycled plastic.

Anders Engholm is a faculty member for the DIS Architecture & Design Program, and has been teaching a Furniture Design summer course since 2014.

On the TV show, five young designers compete to make the best piece of design in a series of categories, for example a sofa, a chair, a stool, and a lamp. The designers have three weeks for each assignment from when they are given the task, to the final presentation of the finished design. During the summer, DIS students have seven weeks to do the same, which is also quite the challenge!

Anders Engholm graduated as an ironmonger from CEU technical school in 2003. In addition, he is educated as a design and business technologist from VIA University College of Design and Business in Herning in 2013 with studies at the Politecnico di Milano in Italy as well.

Anders Engholm did a fantastic job on the TV show, and is a constant source of inspiration to our students. We are very proud to count him among our faculty. Congratulations, Anders!
