The Design Center closed at the beginning of 2013, according to the café staff currently at the former Design Center location.

The building has a really stylish exterior but it is in fact a cafe with offices, not a design museum.

I went their expecting to see displays of famous Danish designers' works and to learn more about the history of Danish design, but instead found nothing but a cafe and sitting area in the 1st floor (although they seemed to be in the midst of setting up some kind a display), and some offices you could look into in the...

There was nothing going on here at all so we decided to have a coffee. Approached the counter & a young guy gave us a menu & told us to sit down as he would come to the table. He then clearly forgot we were there, difficult as there were only a couple of other customers. After some time he... More

This is now offices, a coffee shop and exhibition space. Instead I recommend a visit to the Danish Design Museum. Although some galleries were closed for repairs on our visit it was still worth going to see originals of the iconic chairs designed by Arne Jacobsen, Hans Wegner and their contemporaries. Definitely give the Design Centre a miss in favour... More

It's been converted to offices and there are no exhibits anymore! A woman must have noticed my confusion as I rode the elevator and explained it to me.

A nice introduction to danish design for a someone who has not seen the classic. As a aficionado, I was hoping for more in on history and impacts.

I was expecting a little bit more from Danish Design Center. However, the exhibition of Danish design from 1945 until 2010 gives general overview of Danish design. The temporary exhibition was presentation of the winners of Danish Design Award 2012, which was interesting. However, if you want to see more from Scandinavian design go to the department store Illums Bolighus.

I had high expectations as Danish designers are well known around the world. And the centre had a quite interesting exhibition based on this year's design competition. It also had a nice history section with famous designs over the last 50 years or so. But that was it. The top floor was being renovated and the kids game area used... More

The temporary exhibition wasn't too smashing (although I've seen some interesting innovation ideas), but the permanent one is quite good, if you're into design. Also, there are gems to look out for in the museum shop.
