The colourful world of Muuto
The Danish brand Muuto's headquarters, which integrates offices with a showroom (along with a roof terrace overlooking the city), impressed us, especially with its work with colours. These, in fact, play a major role in the design of new products as well. In addition to the classic natural wood, the Midst round dining table is available in dark burgundy, while the popular Restore baskets come in a whole new range of shades, from olive to pastel blue.
Welcome to Hotel Normann, where each room is a unique display of design. For 3 Days of Design, Normann Copenhagen has completely transformed its headquarters. The existing range and 30 new products (including the chunky Burra lounge chairs, Pix lamps, and the Vig outdoor furniture collection) were presented in the context of several rooms and communal spaces for refreshments or relaxation, giving the impression of an actual hotel.
Located in a historic building in the heart of Copenhagen, HAY House is not to be missed. Here too, we set out to discover the new items from the upcoming autumn collection. You can look forward to new lounge chairs, side tables, dining tables, and an extended range of lighting, such as the Apollo pendant chandelier and Apex lamps.
Bolia in its new home
To the colourful design of HAY, Bolia is the perfect counterpoint, with a world full of wood and neutral beige shades. We were captivated by both its new products and its brand-new showroom, located in the impressive premises of the 1741 building.
Interior and garden inspiration at Ferm Living
Close to Bolia sits another of the brands we couldn't miss. Ferm Living won us over with its outdoor spaces full of garden furniture as well as its novelties inside the showroom. In a special display, we also learned more about the steps the brand is taking towards sustainability.
&Tradition: colour, elegance and design icons
The brand is based in a beautiful house where each of the many rooms offers a different atmosphere. Alongside the beautiful interiors, you can also see the original design of Flowerpot and Utzon lamps from the 1970s and 1950s, materials, sketches, or a display of the Spanish designer Jaime Hayon's favourite objects, as well as new products he has designed for &Tradition.
Only recently have the two successful brands Menu and by Lassen merged into one. Therefore, the 3 Days of Design provided Audo with a wonderful opportunity to mark this fresh beginning and introduce new products like the Umanoff side tables or the well-liked Bottle grinders in an adorable tiny design.
The two worlds of New Works
Visiting the New Works showroom, we first found ourselves in a light-filled space whose design clearly reflected the inspiration of Japanese aesthetics. On the contrary, the other part of the showroom lets the furniture stand out in the context of its dark colours and dim lighting. We found ourselves particularly interested in the shelving system or the lamps, whose shades can be positioned differently to achieve a different look each time.
