Josephine Michau

Get inspired on what to experience during 3daysofdesign 2024.

Meet Josephine Michau, the Festival Director and Co-Founder of the Copenhagen Architecture Festival. With an education background in Business and Philosophy from CBS, Josephine has worked extensively within the realms of cultural dissemination, distribution, and production in Denmark. She has showcased her curatorial prowess as the curator of the Danish Pavilion during the Venice Biennale in 2023. As the CEO and founder of Copenhagen Architecture Festival (CAFx.dk), she continues to make significant contributions to the field.

Here are Josephine Michau's top three recommendations to explore during 3daysofdesign 2024:

  1. Transcendence: This is a clear opportunity to acquaint yourself with some of the most innovative designers, who possess a strong ethical and aesthetic compass in their use and manipulation of materials. I am particularly curious about the works of Mari Koppanen. Under the guidance of curator Frederikke Aagaard, this experience is bound to be an enlightening one.
  2. Royal Danish Academy: It's always exciting to get a glimpse into the research institutions and their ongoing projects, as their studies often provide a sneak peek into what the future holds. The Academy is at the forefront of their investigations and experiments with biogenic materials, which I find incredibly fascinating. It gives us a chance to gain insights and ponder the future perspectives of these materials.
  3. Peach Corner: So far, this venue has not disappointed with its ceramic exhibitions. It is intriguing to see how ceramics can be stretched in so many directions, continually surprising us, even after several thousand years of ceramic history.

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.
