In collaboration with Penther/Formes Mannequins and Royal Copenhagen, the Designers' Nest Show and Award are here again to promote Scandinavian design talent at its best and present the award for Best New Talent with a cash prize of DKK 50,000.
This time around the student competitions will merge into one big show and will be held only on Saturday 13 February.
