3 Days of Design: Our Visual Diary

24 September 2021

3 Days of Design in Copenhagen

On 16th – 18th September 2021, Denmark’s annual design festival, 3 Days of Design, commenced in Copenhagen exhibiting up & coming designers, new releases and iconic designs from the best in the lifestyle, furniture and lighting design industry.

Some of the biggest names in design took up residence in showrooms and impressive exhibition spaces throughout the city to give us insight and inspiration for the year ahead!

We sent some of the David Village Lighting Team to take a look at key exhibits from the event to keep us ahead of the curve, which is vital in our ever-evolving design industry.

Here are some of our favourite images from our time in Copenhagen...


Vitra Akari light sculptures:

The handmade Japanese paper lantern designs by Akari for Vitra looked stunning as a multiple pendant installation this dramatic interior setting!


Flos Arrangements, Coordinates, Noctambule and classic 2097 chandeliers:

For statement lighting design pieces such as Arrangements, Noctambule and Coordinates, we can see how high ceilings make such an impactful interior feature. With many options and versions to choose from, Flos’ contemporary lighting designs can work perfectly in a wide range of spaces both residential and commercial.


Fritz Hansen Showroom:

An eye-catching installation of Suspence pendants by Fritz Hansen, along with the frosted plum glass Maluma pendant which is a recent release from earlier this year.

Fritz Hansen’s newest release is the Clam pendant, designed by Ahm & Lund which was revealed at the 3 Days of Design event! Clam is a unique design which diffuses light beautifully through a pair of opal glass shades, acting as shells protecting a glowing pearl of light within.


Louis Poulsen showroom:

It’s always wonderful to see bestselling designs in the flesh and in situ! Louis Poulsen Artichoke is an amazing statement pendant, to see it styled in a living room scenario was breath taking. We also saw some of the VL45 pendants, Yuh collection and some new, mysterious sphere lights.

Possible new NJP table lamp models as well as a new multi pendant mobile system:


Muuto design showroom:

Muuto are known for their impeccably styled room sets and showroom spaces, really giving us an idea of how their lighting and furniture works in the everyday home.

A beautiful mix of natural materials, pleasing colour palettes and highly functional design reminds us how accessible and comforting the Scandinavian way of living is.

New Works showroom:

Bestselling collections Lantern and Material on display are a perfect example of how matching lights can work together within a space to create flowing continuity.

A new collection launched during the 3 Days of Design event: Margin – a tiered shade design comprising of pendant lights, table lamp and floor lamp, coming soon!


Normann Copenhagen:

It was wonderful to see popular designs by Normann Copenhagen on display to demonstrate how they can be used in a range of spaces. Phantom, Bell and Amp chandelier work perfectly over dining areas or even in social living areas, adding a touch of style as well as much needed ambience.


Now life is resuming to something more like normality, it will be a pleasure to visit more events such as these to catch up with our brands and gather new-found inspiration to pass on to our design loving customers.
