When I think about the Danish inventions and designs, I cannot help to feel a bit proud of being a Dane. Did you know that a Dane designed the battery? And have you ever considered how many great Danish designs we have in interior design?
The other day, I surfed the net for birthday wishes. I ended up at Luxoliving, which is a webpage where you can buy things for decorating your home. And here, I came across tons of beautiful Danish interior designs. I love all of the small figurines made by a variety of Danish designers – Kay Bojesen, Paul Anker and such. The figurines are sweet and cute-looking, but still very stylish and tasteful. I simply love them, and cannot get enough of them. I already have a few of them, but I think I have to wish for more.
Furthermore, I think that the Danish company Velux is so admirable. The products created by the company are innovative, unique and oh so functional. The history about how the company invented a completely new product that allowed for windows in rooftops is amazing. And the designs of the skylights made by Velux are so elegant.
Another thing that makes me proud is all of those inventions that were made by Danes. Did you know that it was Danes that invented the speaker, insulin and ostomy. Pretty amazing inventions if you ask me! And the battery is invented by a Dane as well – and now sold in millions around the world. Did you consider how many batteries are sold for private as well as professional purposes?
Okay, maybe I’m bragging a bit about my country. But honestly, I really am proud of Denmark. I have tons of respect for all of those Danes who did a little extra and created the society that we live in today.
