If you happen to be in the Japanese town of Kanazawa in August, be sure to stop by the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art. There Sögreni together with around 70 other exhibitors will display some of the best examples of Danish design like chairs from Børge Mogensen, the small pen from Novo Nordisk used by people affected by diabetes all over the world, glassware from Tora Urup and many others.

The title of the exhibition is “Everyday Life – Signs of Awareness”. What you see on the Pictures are 1) all the parts needed to make a classic chair: the KEVI 2533, designed by Jørgen Rasmussen back in 1958 – and 2) the actual Sögreni bicycle as presented in Japan, a Sögreni Classic. This model is also called the Louisiana bicycle after beeing shown at the Louisiana Museum at Humlebæk, Denmark for many years.
