Public Crafts is a material development and research team that specializes in Japanese crafts within the field of interior design. The team values its strength in communication, facilitating interactions between clients and craftsmen to address diverse challenges and offer alternatives to industrial systems. The focus is on materials from Japan that are gradually fading from modern life. Public Crafts aspires to investigate the unique approaches employed by the Japanese, who have lived in harmony with nature, in their interaction with these materials. The ultimate objective is to seamlessly incorporate Japanese materials into contemporary spaces.

Public Crafts aim to introduce the organic texture of handwoven Japanese Sakiori Fabric into contemporary living spaces and public areas. Sakiori fabric is created simply through the combination of warp and weft threads, allowing it to be free from tradition or history and providing a platform for free expression. While utilizing Japanese materials like recycled kimonos, it is a versatile material that can adapt to various spaces and concepts. Public Crafts aspire to break free from the conventional image of Sakiori Fabric and create an entirely new visual and aesthetic experience. Public Crafts encourage the enjoyment of Sakiori Fabric in modern living, appreciating its organic transformation over time.

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.
