DARE TO DREAM

Ask a designer, architect or interior designer, and they’ll tell you that they don’t just design products, buildings or interiors. They design dreams.

Why do we DARE TO DREAM?

Dreams are the gateway to our innermost thoughts, a springboard for the imagination, free from limitations rooted in practicalities. It’s within this dreamscape that unconventional ideas are born. Ideas with a deeper, more profound meaning that connect creators and consumers on an emotional level.

The result is design with a raison d'être beyond form and function. Where a chair is more like a companion, a table is where like-minded souls meet, a lamp illuminates your thoughts, and a sofa offers a sanctuary of solace.

Those who dare to dream are bound to seek out innovative solutions that challenge the status quo, exploring uncharted territories to uncover possibilities that were once deemed unattainable. Their pursuit extends to the discovery of naturally occurring and recycled materials with compelling properties and outcomes that prioritise planet and people, propelling every link in the chain to push the boundaries of established norms.

3daysofdesign was founded over a decade ago with a vision to showcase and celebrate the inspired minds shaping the creative landscape of tomorrow. Integral to our ambitions was a desire to provide a platform for visionaries to realise their dreams through the power of community and connection.

From emerging designers pushing boundaries to esteemed brands revitalising their legacies, from innovators harnessing cutting-edge technology to artisans preserving timeless craftsmanship — 3daysofdesign is a convergence of diverse perspectives and disciplines. Join us as Copenhagen's showrooms, galleries, and event spaces open their doors, inviting you to experience hundreds of exhibitors from Denmark and abroad.

As the director and founder of 3daysofdesign, I take immense pride in fostering a space where dreamers, doers, and the design-curious converge.

When designers dare to dream, it’s an invitation for you to dream with them.

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.
