Audo House, Århusgade 130, 2150 Copenhagen
The Audo is an interesting combination of hotel, café, restaurant, store, showroom and office space. The result is warm and inviting, and inspiring for everyone interested in interior design. Audo House will showcase work by MENU, Sørensen Leather, St. Leo, August Sandgren, Brandt Collective, Durup, Geberit and Kolon during the festival.
The courtyard in itself is worth a visit and on the 7th of June during 3daysofdesign there's chilled summer drinks served at a Courtyard Gathering between 16:00 and 18:00.
Frederiksgade 1, 4th Floor, 1265 Copenhagen, Denmark
To me the design collective at Frederiksgade 1 is a must visit during 3daysofdesign. The whole building is full of interesting design and creative exhibitions. From the ground floor of the old ATBO store, to the 4th Floor - and everything in between. The Tea Ceremony at New Works on June 8th at 14:00 conducted by IO tea house sounds like a must.
Bredgade 38, 2nd Floor, Copenhagen, Denmark
Last year Helle Mardahl was nominated for best exhibition and I have to say that her exhibition was one of my absolute favorites. She managed to create a fairy tale and a space that felt like you were stepping into another world. Can't wait to see what she has created for this year's festival.
Bredgade 68, 1260 Copenhagen
Designmuseum Danmark is Denmark's leading museum of Danish and international design. It recently underwent a thorough renovation that lasted more than two years. The finished result is impressive and definitely worth a visit. You will get a walkthrough of Danish design history in the exhibition 'The Magic of Form' - from Arne Jacobsen’s Series 7 Chair, Verner Panton’s Globe Pendant and Finn Juhl’s Chieftain Chair to artworks by Alexander Calder and Henri Matisse. The museum not only shows historic design, but also exhibitions on contemporary design and the design of the future. The building in itself and courtyard in the center is worth taking notice of.
Gammel Mønt 21, 1116 Copenhagen, Denmark
Yoonede is a newly formed concept initiated by the three designers Sofie Østerby, Line Øhlenschlæger and Maaria Repo. They each have their own individual approach to process and design and created this new project on a wish to bring creatives together - to learn from each other’s differences and share a common passion for design, art and objects. The project fits perfectly with 3daysofdesign’s theme of connectedness and I can't wait to see the exhibition.
On the last day of the festival, Yoonede invites us to celebrate togetherness from 16:00 to 20:00 and that seems like the perfect way to wrap up the festival.
