Success story – from warehouse romance to an important design festival

The importance the 3 Days Of Design now enjoys in the design community and among fans of aesthetic design forms can be seen in the exponential increase in popularity every year. When Signe Byrdal Terenziani organized the 2013 Days of Designs for the first time in her role as managing director of the newly founded event format in 3, the event was still within a very manageable framework.


It was just a small design event in the harbor district of Nordhavn. The location was an old warehouse with a direct view of the Copenhagen coast. Four Danish brands launched the new event format: Anker & Co, Erik Jørgensen (now owned by Fredericia Furniture), Montana and Kvadrat.

The whole of Copenhagen is an exciting festival area

With the 3 Days of Design they wanted to end the vacuum that had been created by stopping the previously annual furniture fair in the Bella Center. The small but fine start of the new event developed over the course of a decade into the most important design festival in all of Scandinavia, which now extends across the entire city of Copenhagen. In 2023 alone, more than 250 brand companies exhibited their products at the festival.

Over 500 events centered around design talks, manufacturing features and networking events attracted visitors in droves. And that's not all: 3 Days of Design is much more than just a design festival. The event presents itself as a successful mix of design, lifestyle, culture, city life and culinary highlights. You can see it for yourself at any time from June 12th to 14th, 2024.
