More than 290 exhibitors in 3 days and, as usual, lots of good design. The Copenhagen festival is a great celebration of design organized to explore the exhibitions in showrooms, stores, studios and on the streets. All open not only to professionals, but also to enthusiasts of good design. What are our this year’s highlights?
Il Mercato exhibition is a unique combination of new furniture, lighting and textiles from Danish brand FRAMA as well as ... food products, including vegetables, mushrooms, preserves and dairy produce from Apotek 57 restaurant, a seasonal FRAMA concept run by the chef Chiara Barli and GRØNT MARKED, a Copenhagen-based marketplace bringing together small farmers.
During the festival we took the opportunity to visit the showroom of the Danish brand GUBI that presented a collection prepared with NOAH, an American men’s clothing company
The company invited to its Copenhagen seat to present the new collections designed by Jaime Hayon: Space Copenhagen and All the Way to Paris as well as the reissue of the iconic "Flowerpot" lamp by Verner Panton or "JU1 Lamp" by Jørn Utzon.
The leading Danish manufacturer of wooden flooring joined forces with Christian + Jade design studio to create The Weight of Wood exhibition. This is the result of a year-long project, in which local artists were invited to confront the question of various weights of wood.
House of Finn Juhl
We also visited a showroom with Danish classics. The furniture designed by Finn Juhl never cease to amaze.
Expressions of character exhibition at Charlottenborg Palace was a great opportunity to take a closer look at how the brand exposed the base elements of its designs. Fritz Hansen also presented famous chairs by Arne Jacobsen and more recent furniture by Jamie Hayon and Sebastian Herkner.
The founder of Tableau brand, Julius Værnes Iversen has been fascinated by the works of a Danish artist, Poul Gernes, since his childhood. Created by Gernes between 1980 and 1990, the lamp is the first reissue of a historic design by Tableau. Made of thin pieces of aluminum sheet, the lamp seems to take the form of a flower.
The Mazō brand also opened its pop-up store at the festival.
Kristina Dam Studio
Kristina Dam enchanted us by sculptural minimalism and very Scandinavian simplicity of her works. Inspired by the Japanese design tradition of the Edo period, she presented a new bar chair from the “Outlines” collection.
We also paid a visit to the showroom of one of our favorite Danish brands. Among other things, Ferm Living presented a collection designed in collaboration with a Norwegian sculptor, Anna Maria Øfstedal, crafted entirely from recycled aluminum.
