Danish Architecture Center (DAC) is an international cultural attraction for everyone who wants to experience and understand how architecture and design create the framework for our lives. DAC is located in the heart of Copenhagen in the spectacular BLOX building which is situated right at the harbor front and as part of Copenhagen’s Cultural Quarter. Through exhibitions, tours, events, learning and networking, Danish Architecture Center creates space for inspiration, enjoyment and immersion.

The exhibition Teenage Dreams offers a glimpse into the future of teenage bedrooms. Designing for teenagers means designing for a generation whose values will shape our future. The exhibition features a photo art project about teenage bedrooms, videos featuring young people discussing their ideal rooms, and three installations by talented young Danish designers. These installations offer insights into how contemporary challenges impact and alter teenagers' needs and desires for their personal spaces. Featured contributors include Barbara Marstrand, Our Shift, Natural Material Studio, and Krøyersætterlassen.

Refusing to compromise for over 30 years, they stand firm on that commitment.

The brand played a vital role in revitalising the spirit of Scandinavian design with a fresh and modern approach. Years later, David Design remains true to its vision. Today, it stands as a well-established international brand, attracting followers seeking iconic, functional, and sustainable furniture and accessories.

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 2024 the festival will be held from 12 - 14 June.
