    What Makes Design Such a Good Investment

    Writing in 1890 in ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde said “Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.” 132 years later this message still resonates, possibly more than ever. In today’s internet-led world, where information about everything is literally at your fingertips, it’s easy to confuse the two, but value and price are not the same. We all want value for our hard-earned cash: sometimes that means paying for quality rather than for a quick fix. Cheap doesn’t necessarily mean good value.

    Kay Bojesen 1886 - 1958

     “Great design is something that everyone is entitled to”.   This was the philosophy of one of Denmark’s favourite sons.

    Kay Bojesen (1886 - 1958) was a Danish designer known and loved for his functional, simple and aesthetic designs. He grew up in a creative home and this shaped his thinking- he considered himself a craftsman, not a designer. Bojesen believed that things weren’t supposed to be drawn; they were shaped in order to work and perform, to hold and to last.
