About

The Mindcraft Project is organized by Copenhagen Design Agency.

The Mindcraft Project is a platform for explorative and experimental design from Denmark. Through communication and exhibitions, the ongoing project addresses issues of future relevance in a meeting between design, craftsmanship, art, research and technology.

The Mindcraft Project celebrates human creativity and design that can bring profound ideas to life and tackle relevant issues. Through exhibitions at leading international design events, pop-up shows, case studies, interviews and articles, The Mindcraft Project aims to raise awareness of what design can do and how it affects our lives.

Artistic and experimental design practices serve as fundamental research in society, inspiring to new ways of thinking, making, consuming and living. Our mission is to elevate these design practices and promote their work, and to push the boundaries for design’s potential to create new perspectives on future innovation.
