Six Things to Do at 3 Days of Design 2018

3 days of design isn’t your typical design fair. Instead of a convention hall and booths, there are open showrooms, events, and the whole city of Copenhagen at your feet. For design-lovers, that’s the real treat: getting to see beautiful and innovative design in a natural setting, the way it’s meant to be seen and used. It’s not just a celebration of design, it’s a celebration of what makes Copenhagen unique.

Here are the best events and showrooms to see during 3 days of design in Copenhagen:

They’ll also talk about the Muuto and Nomad collaboration, of course. Drinks served by Njord Gin (hip hip hurray).
