There’s a new darling in town: Design guest house opens in the heart of Copenhagen
At Copenhagen’s new design guest house, The Darling, you can surround yourself with the best of Danish design and art and purchase the pieces you can’...
From 16.-18. September, Copenhagen will pay tribute to what Denmark also stands for Design. But this year, it is happening with a different mindset. More than ever, we have become aware of what interior design means for our well-being.
In the days to come, we meet with a different mindset at Denmark’s largest design festival, 3daysofdesign. Months of lockdown have not only made us eager to see each other again but has also made us aware of how much our surroundings mean for our well-being.
Whether it is the chair that tells the back how well it is designed or the colour on the wall with its indirect way of signalling well-being - we are more aware than ever what good design does to us.
“During the pandemic, external factors forced us to stay at home. Here, we found out how important it is to surround ourselves with furniture and colours we like. Never have we been painting and decorating as much as we have during this period. But we also found out that things must mean something to us,” director of 3daysofdesign, Signe Byrdal Terenziani says. For that reason, this year’s festival will focus on presence and contemplation.
“This year is about closeness and reflection. The themes are creativity, empathy, and good craftsmanship - as illustrated by designer Ilse Crawford, who created this year’s logo. We celebrate the humane design and objects that give us value,” Signe Byrdal Terenziani continues.
More than 200 exhibitors
This year, more than 200 design companies participate. It’s the highest number to date. They are helping transform Copenhagen into a vibrant backdrop for design, where we welcome everyone to get an insight into what is happening on the Danish design scene right now. 3daysofdesign is the event, where you hear about the designers’ creative processes at the many talks and pop-up events. It’s where you can enrich the senses by letting your hand slide over the processed wood, or you can see how the designers give new life to old materials.
Expanded digital platform
3daysofdesign has further expanded its digital platform in 2021 for those who do not have the opportunity to physically participate in the event. It is thus possible to live-stream several of the interesting talks that will be on during the festival. And do not miss 3daysofdesign’s podcast.
