Top Six Must-Sees at the 3daysofdesign Festival

Happenings, Food, Guide

Words Nina NørgaardDate 11 June 2024

The Copenhagen-based 3daysofdesign festival returns for its 11th edition from June 12 to 14. We asked local glass artist Nina Nørgaard for her top tips on making the most of this year’s thrilling lineup.

This edition’s theme, “Dare to Dream,” showcases the innovation of over 400 participating brands, designers, and artisans. Explore Nørgaard’s handblown creations at the festival with brands like &Drape and Galleri Feldt, along with SPCE.LOVE, and through an open house (by appointment) at her studio. Here are her recommendations.

“Previously, the fair took place in September. It has now been moved to the start of the summer, adding joy and vibrancy with many outdoor events.”

They always do nice projects and there’s always a good gang of people around. This year FRAMA’s Copenhagen spaces feature an exhibition, COLLAGE, in collaboration with Toogood, which explores the intersection of art, design, food, and people. To accompany the exhibition, they are also producing a limited-edition collaborative collection.

A great all-day spot with a good vibe, and if you are lucky, there might be an afterparty. It’s not in the city center, but it’s worth a visit.

Under the Knippelsbro bridge, this hidden gem has a large collection of natural wines. It’s on the sunny side of the harbor in the evening, making it a beautiful spot to sit.
