In 2015, Shade was founded to challenge the way we use and interact with light. To achieve that, Shade has established a tight collaboration with designer Øivind Slaatto to continuously develop the ØS1 smart lamp series, which combine cutting edge technology with Scandinavian design. Shade believes that design must be able to improve life to justify its existence and that’s the reason why the ØS1 is created to be fully adjustable in terms of light directions, intensity, temperature and colour.

The Shade exhibition is a study of interior lighting and the way people interact and benefit from personalized light settings. To really experience light we need to be aware and look at it in a completely different way and grasp the opportunities it gives us.

Kasper Kyster chases the unknown. He seeks to test his intuition and experiment with materials and principles to achieve something spontaneous. His motivation is largely about the process of creating, about producing and chasing the unique rather than the perfect.

Based on topics such as statics, tectonics, form and function, he works uncompromisingly towards one concept that can become a piece of furniture or object. The limitation means that his work appears spontaneous and intuitive. Kyster puts materials and craft above everything else. He is curious about how you can experiment with old crafts to give materials new aesthetics, and how modern technologies can redefine crafts' impact on aesthetics.

It all began in 2013 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 Scandinavian

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.
