In the late 1940s, post Second World War, conditions in Denmark became ideally suited to success in design. Whilst the emphasis was on furniture, other design disciplines like architecture, silver, ceramics, glass and textiles also benefitted from the trend. Denmark's late industrialisation, combined with a tradition of high-quality craftsmanship, formed the basis of gradual progress towards industrial production. After the end of the war, Europeans and Americans alike were keen for a renewed approach to living and the Danes were well placed to show the way. Last but not least, support in Denmark for freedom of individual expression assisted the cause.
