Positioned at the point where the beauty of history meets the thrill of right now, GUBI is the creative force and curator behind the world’s most extraordinary design from the 20th century onwards. Whether diving into archives or driving the designs of today, GUBI is responsible for a timeless, inventive, and intercontinental collection of furniture, lighting and interior objects that merge function with meaning, enhancing every space. As well as rediscovering and reintroducing lost treasures of design history for the present generation, GUBI collaborates with a hand-picked global roster of visionary design studios to create icons for tomorrow.

TACTILE ENCOUNTERS | GUBI invites visitors to discover and explore the intersection of color and texture – the point where shade and surface meet, and the emotions they inspire as a result. Alongside new furniture and lighting editions from the likes of Pierre Paulin and Mathieu Matégot, GUBI unveils fresh material thinking from contemporary studios including Vibeke Fonnesberg Schmidt and GamFratesi in a colorful and graphic display. Revered Italian fabric house Dedar and sustainable leather specialists at Sørensen Leather collaborate with GUBI to showcase a tactile textile and leather installation. And, for Unicef, GUBI presents a collaboration featuring its iconic Pacha Lounge Chair in surplus fabrics in support of children worldwide.

Nanette de Kool graduated from the Illinois Institute of Art, Chicago. Back in Europe she worked for textile studios in Antwerp and Amsterdam, where her love for 3D knits began. Nanette loves working with circular 3D knits: remains like leftover textiles and yarns including production flaws. Imperfections are part of the creation; tactility and the texture of the fabric add to her visual language. She screen-prints, washes, cuts and then re-assembles the textile, creating new compositions. This leads to more depth in color, character, texture and story. Next to wall-hangings, Nanette also makes suspended screens, room-dividers and made-to-measure pieces.

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.

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. All events are free of charge – however this his year we're using a new QR ticket system to make your experience smoother and more enjoyable.
