This year, 3daysofdesign are collaborating with IKEA to create COMMON GROUND Symposium - a space for dreaming bold dreams for our future. The planet needs space to rest and regenerate for future generations. So do we. Visitors are invited into a dreamy playground at Food Studio in District Refshaleøen, where slowness and time for reflection is a priority, and are dared to dream. Whether you’re a sustainability expert, policy maker, designer, architect or just interested in how design can be a force for change.

COMMON GROUND Symposium is an exchange of perspectives serving as a platform during 3daysofdesign where experts, innovators, and designers meet to explore the intersections of sustainability, materials, and circular design principles. Moderated by Veronica D’Souza, you will meet Luca Nichetto, Anupama Kundoo, Akanksha Deo Sharma, Alfredo Häberli, Michael Anastassiades, Ineke Hans, Liza Chong, Bonnie Hvillum, Tej Chauhan, Larry Botchway, Steffen Kallehauge, Marcus Arvonen, Maria Vinka, Philippe Brocart, and Anker Bak. Join us as we unite the design community to envision a more inclusive, equitable, and sustainable future. All sessions are free, but require registration. Book your free ticket now.

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.
