This paper presents a framework within which inclusion is taught at the Royal Danish Academy – Architecture, Design and Conservation. During the ten-day course, students from the master’s degree program Furniture and Object were asked to re-design a chair, Børge Mogensen’s J39, in response to de-mographic shifts and the changing expectations of tomorrow’s older genera-tions. The paper describes a novel approach that combines people-centered methods with the study of the chair’s tectonics and typological characteris-tics as a means by which to improve the quality of chair design, not only for an aging population, but for all people. The findings from the study highlight the effectiveness of this creative practice based on a critical dialogue between the past and the future as a way to explore the potential of design for improv-ing the future of ourselves.
