3 Days of Design 2022 celebrated again the best of the Danish and Scandinavian creative talent in Copenhagen. Timeless design that draws on the great traditions and icons of the past to create the classic furniture pieces of the future. Gubi, New Works, Hay, Carl Hansen & Søn, House of Finn Juhl, Fredericia and other prestigious Nordic brands previewed new collections and innovative reinterpretations, bold and refined, that evoke emotions and tell meaningful stories.
Beetle in 3D Veneer revives GamFratesi's iconic design for Gubi: the 3D veneer concept gives it a new, bold, natural expression; the graceful form inspired by the Beetle shell is enhanced by the natural feel of the wood.
Originally designed by Joe Colombo in 1957, the Basket collection is named after the classic hand-weaving technique used in the rattan wickers. An innovative approach to this natural material is evident in the strongly modernist aesthetic. The texture of the material contrasts the softness of the cushions, and the curves and shapes create an organic yet inviting overall appearance.
GamFratesi draws inspiration from the symmetrical and clean architectural order to design the Doric coffee table. The typical fluting of the Doric column is reinterpreted in a contemporary style by the inward curvature of the sculptural legs, lightened by a reduced volume.
Fredericia celebrates 75 years of the J39 chair by Børge Mogensen, better known as The People's Chair, a clear example of timeless versatility and universal appeal. For its anniversary, the special edition has a hand-woven seat made of sedge grass, like the 1947 original design.
House of Finn Juhl introduces in Copenhagen the Åkande contemporary furniture collection designed by designer Jonas Lyndby Jensen, stunning in its elegance and simplicity. The Danish brand also relaunches the extravagant Whisky Chair: designed in 1948 with the eccentric feature of holding a glass of whisky, made with precious canaletto walnut, with leather or fabric coverings and enriched with brass details.
During this year's 3 Days of Design, New Works unveiled a series of new additions to its collection, available from autumn 2022. Solid legs support the broad Atlas tabletop by Knut Bendik Humlevik. Like a sculptural architrave, it draws a balance between geometric elements and different weights. Unusual compositions and an elegant silhouette characterise the restyling of the iconic chair designed by Steven Bukowski: the Bukowski Chair balances lightness and majesty, solidity and sleek geometry. The Shelving System by New Works easily adapts to any type of environment: essential and flexible, it has integrated bookends, with great attention to detail and refined design.
Hay's Apollo is a portable indoor and outdoor lamp designed by Studio 0405. Handmade from a single piece of opal glass, it is perfect for creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere anywhere.
The Pao lamp collection designed by Naoto Fukasawa has a simple, harmonious look inspired by the soft shape of the traditional Mongolian curtains from which it is named.
Parade by Viola Heyn-Johnsen and Jonas Trampedach is a glass table lamp with different elements to be arranged in a variety of ways.
