Five Spots in Copenhagen: Michael Anastassiades

Cypriot-born, London-based designer Michael Anastassiades loves Copenhagen. These are his five favourite must-see places

1. Bethlehem Church by Peder Vilhelm Jensen Klint and Kaare Klint.

I regularly travel for work, though I always try to make time to discover hidden gems as part of my architectural exploration of the city. I love how the vision for the design of this masterpiece got so brilliantly translated over two generations, from father to son.

2. Finn Juhl’s own house.

The architect’s own home is always the humblest representation of their vision. There is an incredible similarity in many architects’ own homes from the same period.

3. Arne Jacobsen’s petrol station

The most beautiful quality of this masterpiece is its intimate sense of scale.

4. Dansk Møbel Kunst showroom (not the gallery).

For the best examples in Scandinavian modern furniture in a fantastic setting.

5. Old Copenhagen airport by Vilhelm Lauritzen

I was taken there a few years ago by a dear friend. I wish that level of intimacy would still be around in today’s travel—an environment where you can appreciate such incredible attention to detail.

When: 15th June, at 9-12.00 PM

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.
