In connection with the rental of the school’s facilities, the canteen offers catering for events, meetings and receptions - a so called Design meal. A Design meal is a tailor-made culinary experience created by the kitchen staff in collaboration with some of the school’s designers. A Design meal is based on the topics you are working with carefully adapted to your particular meeting. This ensures a common thread throughout the event, and participants are activated in an innovative way.

Opening hours
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday 8.30–14.30
Wednesday 10–13
Friday 8.30–13.30



Design School Kolding knows the importance of putting design into practice and therefore prioritises good workshop facilities where students can work with their material 1:1. This is where students can experiment and develop their working methods, and where academic method and practice-based research meet.

The school’s workshops play a key role in the programme and consist of computer workshops, workshops for video and audio editing, graphics and printing, photography, model building in wood, metal, plastic etc., and weaving, knitting, fur, textile printing, cutting out and sewing workshops.
