Week 16, April 2018, Milan, Design Week.
“Salone or Fuori Salone, that is the question”. Clearly, we visited them both.
The Salone del Mobile, with the companies, the showrooms and the sales personal represents the business core of the design week. Professional designers, managers and entrepreneurs presenting to the world their creations. NDB had the pleasure to visit many Danish companies and meet their representatives.
Milan, Salone del Mobile, 2018
Fuori Salone is different. It offers artistic exhibitions and the experience of the strong city vibe. And Aperitivo… So in between a Spritz, a cocktail and a beer, Milan drives you through art and design all around the city center. That’s where the creativity is. Were the energy is driven by people, by movement and sometimes by alcohol. The modern skyline and the old buildings, the fashion houses and the museums become the background for the creatives. The people.

We had an amazing experience in Milan. Ny Dansk Bølge will be back, stronger and more provocative than ever.
See you soon Salone
Which factor could change life in Danish countryside villages?
With this question in mind we approached our last assignment. We had the pleasure to cooperate with local companies and organizations in Bjert, Kolding. We curated the presentation event for the project “Nyt liv i gamle længer” (New life in old farms).
We applied our design skills creating the identity for the event, as well as marketing materials like flyers and banner. We curated the design of the space representing the breakthrough vision of the architects. The mockup of the buildings and the kids’ play area created an interactive experience in the room. Over 160 guests had the pleasure to enjoy the space, the cozy atmosphere and the talks from the Mayor of Kolding and the architect.
It is always a pleasure for us to cooperate and support projects we believe in. We support the values and the vision of this challenging plan. We wish all the best to the organizers for the proceeding of their path.
This is the week!
Light Festival is coming to town and NDB team is excited and ready to go live. From Thursday 5.00 p.m. our light installations will be displayed at Nicolai. We have worked hard on our conceptualization in order to add depth and value to the celebration of light concept.

Yesterday NDB team participated in Kolding’s PechaKucha night at Mungo Bhàr. The event is based on the Japanese presentation style of 20 slides for 20 seconds each. The set up gave us the chance to test our first “SMART Concert”.
We gave the chance to the audience to engage and stream the concert directly from their smartphones. The concert was then streamed only through the smartphone speakers, without the support of other audio equipments. The live stream reached a total of 45 viewers out of approximately 63 participants displaying a successful engagement of the audience.
We are happy to announce that the experiment has been successfully conducted. We are looking forward to repeat this project increasing the audience engagement and the technological level.
We thanks Mungo Park staff for the event and the lovely location.

Ny Dansk Bølge (New Danish Wave) had the pleasure to participate at the anniversary for the first year of Pakhuset in Kolding.
The event, hosted and organized by Business Kolding, presented the results of one year of work in the structure. The creation of new jobs through the development of new businesses is the goal of Business Kolding. Pakhuset, as space for entrepreneurs and makers, provide a positive environment for startups development. Although the energies spent in the process, few new companies have been able to prove their sustainability through their sales. A long way still needs to be covered in order to develop a sustainable startup environment in Kolding. As Ny Dansk Bølge we aim to overcome the challenge using our strong multidisciplinary team and fresh skills.
The event gave to all the team the chance to network and deepen the knowledge of what Business Kolding can provide as institution to young entrepreneurs and new businesses.
