Kay Bojesen’s Grand Prix is participating in the exhibition ‘Danish Design at the House’ which is located in the Wester Foyer of the Sydney Opera House and runs from Friday 25th October until 11th November 2013. The exhibition is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Sydney Opera House and the collaboration between Danish design and Australia. The exhibition consists of six windows: Pragmatism, Desire, Human, Technology, Craft, and Materiality. The Grand Prix cutlery is located in the Pragmatism window along with Hay, Lightyears, Ole Lynggaard and Scanpan. The Pragmatism window is described as: ‘Desirable objects that feature fine materials are more likely to be used in everyday life. Therefore, the pragmatics of using an object is as important as form. A pragmatic approach is a provider for realizing innovative products it awakes our desire for certain objects and explains why our homes are full of Danish design.’
