* - If Google Translate is to be trusted, that is Danish for, "Do you know what is popular design?" Hopefully it doesn't mean something like "Your mom is an anchovy."
So let's just say you are walking around Copenhagen in 1959 and come across this in a furniture showroom:
You think to yourself, "That looks quite pretty but right now I have to get home to put this cheese in the cooler." Then you trip and hit your head.
Next thing you know 57 years have passed and you wake up.
The nurse next to you at your hospital is holding a little electronic thing in her hand and tells you she is shopping for some new furniture. She shows you this:
"Holy herring!" you cry out. That chair you saw way back in 1959 is in some store today called Target. What's amazing is she shows you these as well:
" Der er intet nyt i design," * you think to yourself.
* = "There is nothing new in design"
