Where Would We Be Without You?
Behind every design, there are numerous individuals who contribute their talents, artisan techniques, and production expertise. There are endless prototypes, processes, and procedures; countless questions and conversations, and unseen variables yielding unexpected outcomes. Not to mention the many rounds of testing and fine-tuning before a concept becomes a reality.
The end result is a singular idea made possible by a multitude of people. Collaborators and cohorts with a shared vision who think in sync, infusing each design with their passion. Collaborators connected via their desire for design to positively impact society and the planet at large, and ultimately pave the path for a future we can all look forward to.
At the same time, behind the scenes of 3daysofdesign, we have exhibitors, designers, producers, and partners, along with bloggers, the press, the general public, and other guests visiting Copenhagen from around the globe. We also have our devoted staff who orchestrate everything to ensure all the pieces of the puzzle come together. It’s a massive undertaking that involves a plethora of details and an aptitude for connecting the dots, culminating in an experience that’s meaningful and memorable – beyond the three days of our festival.
This year, for the 10th edition of 3daysofdesign, we go backstage behind the designs to highlight the factors hidden from view. To celebrate how everything and everyone, in one way or another, is all connected.
To begin this communal reflection we spoke with photographer Rasmus Hjortshøj about interconnectedness in his practice. Read the interview here, and follow along as we publish more editorial features focussed on our theme, “Where Would We Be Without You?”
We look forward to exchanging many great ideas, experiences and expertise with you - our design community - this year, especially from June 7-9 in Copenhagen.
This year’s theme visuals were made in collaboration with a group of multidisciplinary Danish creatives. Photographer Rasmus Hjortshøj and videographer Pelle Darger Johansen captured six friends of 3daysofdesign as they formed a dynamic visual depiction of collaboration, connectivity and creativity.

The imagery would not have been possible without Sjur, Monique, Laura, Jacob, Noah and Filippa and the 3daysofdesign team.
Thank you to &Drape for supplying the textiles and to Manu Sareen for providing a delightful camper van that kept the team warm during the photoshoot.
