Through the uncompromising study and appreciation of craft, materials, composition, and context, they curate and feature collections exclusively a few times a year. Their mission is to bring equity into the design industry, nurturing new talent by presenting exceptional and innovative works by committing to fostering a supportive environment for designers, helping to connect their craft with the right audiences. They aim to become a launching platform for emerging talent, be the preferred marketplace for design enthusiasts, and a distinctive sourcing archive for industry professionals.

The Danish conception of modern life, specifically the way of creating livable spaces, offers a great deal to today‘s designers. The close relationship with nature, the thoughtful and careful use of natural materials or spaces, and the allowance of flexible uses – are just some of the points that seem more pertinent to our contemporary context than ever. The Korshage house, built in 1960 by Erik Korshagen on the north coast of Denmark, serves as a prime example. Using it as a spatial and conceptual link, an international group of designers will showcase their contemporary furniture in the spirit of the historic site. In this way, the exhibition will link Danish home culture and its influence on today‘s global design landscape.

Since its inception in 2013, Signe Byrdal Terenziani has facilitated the growth of the design community in her role as Managing Director. It all began as a small design event held in an old warehouse in Nordhavn, a harbour area overlooking Copenhagen’s waterfront. Four Danish brands launched the event as a joint initiative: Montana, Erik Jørgensen (now owned by Fredericia Furniture), Anker & Co, and Kvadrat. At that time, Copenhagen lacked a proper design festival, since the previous annual furniture fair at Bella Center closed down some years before.

Today, the 3daysofdesign festival extends to the entire city of Copenhagen and is considered the most significant annual design festival in Scandinavia.

Each year since its inception, 3daysofdesign has grown in popularity exponentially. In 2023, over 250 brands exhibited at the festival, where visitors could choose from as many as 500 events to attend in various design districts across Copenhagen, such as design talks, networking events, etc.

3daysofdesign takes place every year in Copenhagen mainly during the second week of June from Wednesday to Friday. In 2025 the festival will be held from 4 - 6 June.

Pack your bags, book a hotel and come to Copenhagen! 3daysofdesign is open to the general public and everyone is invited to visit the showrooms, exhibitions, workshops and design talks.
