Design Can Make - Crafting Tomorrow's Design Landscape

Coffee grounds, sawdust, seagrass and plastic. What was once considered waste is now a valuable resource, as the basis for a more sustainable approach to producing the designs of tomorrow.

Joining us are companies taking an innovative approach to materials and manufacturing. What are the obstacles? The options? And some of the cutting-edge ideas that re-think how designs can be made? Find out when you listen to our next podcast Design Can MAKE, which looks at things from a producer’s perspective. We asked three producers how they work towards their dream of manufacturing without any adverse effect on our planet.

Today’s guests are:

Kim Dolva, Founder and owner of furniture studio and workshop Københavns Møbelsnedkeri

Maria Fryd Wehler, Founder and owner of Wehlers Furniture

Magnus Henriques, Mason and Co-Founder / Co-CEO of Havnens Hænder

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.
