Exhibition Danish Design
14 September 2020
Our museum's post-summer exhibition showcases modern pipe designs, including many freehands, a style that originated in Denmark. The modern pipes are characterized by an asymmetrical shape, which is difficult to reach in the rock-hard briar wood. Usually this is milled on a turning lathe to a perfectly round shape. The design pipes were all smoked by former minister Jos van Kemenade, who died last February. He had a specific preference for this Danish Design. His legacy of smoking equipment has been donated to the Amsterdam Pipe Museum, to which this original exhibition "Danish design, the choice of Jos van Kemenade" is due. On display until November 21, 2020.
