Bruun Rasmussen is a Danish auction house founded in 1948. Today, the company is owned by the British auction house Bonhams – one of the world's leading and oldest auction houses with a large network of offices and departments all over the world. Bruun Rasmussen has a long history of selling design and decorative art from the Golden Age period from 1920 and up to the present day. With leading design specialists in “Danish modern” from the mid 20th century, the auction house ensures the most credible valuations of design pieces. Furniture classics, modern design, lighting, and decorative art by all the most skilled and famous designers are regular guests at their auctions, year after year.

The exhibition “Danish Living – Design in Transition” puts the spotlight on a special way of furnishing and decorating a home in the end of the 1960’s. The tone veered towards a simple, solid look, with the focus on long-lasting furniture of a high level of craftsmanship and quality. Natural hues formed the colour palette, the light Scandinavian woods were favoured, and ceramics and textile art became an important part of the interior. Much of the preferred pieces had been designed many years earlier in the post-war years, but the items were handpicked based on the new trend-setting aesthetics. The mindset of the late 1960s is in keeping with our interior preferences today. All exhibited items will be up for auction in mid-June.

Kinship is an interdisciplinary exhibition project - created for 3daysofdesign 2023 - based on a dialogue between designer Birgitte Due Madsen, architect Anne Dorthe Vester and curator Henriette Noermark Andersen. The three established practices are unified aesthetically and linguistically in this group exhibition based on a sentiment that the often overlooked or unequivocal invisible collaborations, in which all designers, architects and curators are involved, raise the level of both single and serial works. The dialogue is based on selected new existing objects by Birgitte Due Madsen and Anne Dorthe Vester, and will lead to the development of a series of joint works with a clear Kinship to their existing portfolio.
For 3daysofdesign the notable Parade lighting series by Viola Heyn-Johnsen and Jonas Trampedach for HAY, has been reimagined and placed within a spatial context at the designers' showroom. The geometry and versatility of the original lamp is unfolded through abstractions and material translations, creating a celebration of product and space combined.
