The Royal Danish Academy embodies the transformative potential of design and architecture within its Institute of Architecture and Design. Through the master's programs – Furniture Design, Strategic Design & Entrepreneurship, Spatial Design, and Fashion, Clothing, and Textiles – the institute investigates the intersection of design and architecture, as well as the relationship between human beings, spatiality and materiality. The aim is to develop specific fields, as well as an in-depth understanding of interdisciplinary collaborations. With this ambition, the institute educates designers and architects who appreciate the value of diversity and collaboration and employ their methods, knowledge and skills to meet the challenges of tomorrow.

A collaborative exhibition powered by the students and supported by the Royal Danish Academy. The exhibition showcases projects at the intersection of design and architecture, created by the 2024 master graduates of the Institute of Architecture and Design across its four programs. With a strong focus on material explorations and the investigations behind each graduation project, the exhibition offers an inspirational insight into the journey from concept to creation. The showcase of prototypes, analysis and processes highlights the creative prowess of the freshly graduated designers and architects, bridging their experimental and innovative minds with the established design industry.

Dagmar showcases timeless Scandinavian furniture classics from the 20th century alongside contemporary designs, all produced with an unwavering dedication to quality craftsmanship. Their collection is made to order in small batches in Sweden and Denmark, using traditional joinery and upholstery methods mastered over generations and utilising only the finest materials. This approach ensures they create future heirlooms that will last a life-time. At the heart of the Dagmar collection is the iconic Clam Chair by Arnold Madsen; a unique piece of Danish design history, brought back to life with painstaking attention to detail.

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.
