Circular Furniture Days

In the museum’s green garden, ‘Circular Furniture Days’ brings together pioneers in sustainable business models, collaborations, and networks that benefit both businesses and the broader climate agenda.

Petal pavillon

During 3daysofdesign, you can also experience the six-meter-high pavilion PETAL created by Lasovsky Johansson Architects (Juras Lasovsky and Hanna Johansson) in the museum’s garden. The pavilion, originally developed for the CHART art fair in 2023 as an example of beautiful, functional, and responsibly sustainable design, is being reconstructed here for the first time. The large structure is crafted from simple lounge chairs assembled into a cylinder that, like a flower, can open and close depending on whether it’s day or night.

Pop-up with Helle Mardahl​

In a fun and colorful collaboration with Danish glass artist Helle Mardahl, guests can explore a universe of beautiful glass objects – all unique and mouth-blown.

Danish Modern

Inside the museum, the newly opened exhibition ‘Danish Modern’ unfolds the history of Danish design, with a special focus on some of the greatest Danish designers of the 20th century.
