During 3daysofdesign, a few weeks ago, multiple new brands were launched – and I want to share a few of them with you over the next couple of days. 3daysofdesign is the annual design festival in Copenhagen, where most showrooms, stores, embassies show of the best of Danish design to the public, it truly is such a unique possibility to see what’s normally behind closed doors.
First up, is new contemporary lifestyle brand, Karimoku Case Study, who had created an amazing exhibition at the Kinfolk Gallery in downtown Copenhagen – The brand’s first furniture collection are created by Norm Architects and Keiji Ashizawa.
Located right above Copenhagen’s busiest street, Strøget, the apartment exhibition was a tactile sanctuary, composed of natural materials, earthy tones and references found between the artworks of the co-exhibitors and the furniture pieces. It really was such a cool space, in fact, I had to come back after my initial visit, just to take it all in properly.
The new collection fits perfectly in with the new direction Scandinavian design is moving these days. Lately, and I bet a lot in the future, Scandi designers have been looking toward Japan for inspiration – a style we call Japandi style, which in short, is all about simplicity, minimalism, neutral palettes, functionality and proper materials.
If you want to know more about Japandi stule, I hightly recommend Italianbark’s post.
