Magisso at 3 Days of design Copenhagen

We’ve run across the globe showcasing our new Magisso products in different trade shows this year. In July, we attended Dwell on Design LA and 3 Days of Design in Copenhagen. The three-day event in Copenhagen was held in the amazing Design Werck – a meeting point and showroom for selected contemporary Danish and Scandinavian design, located near the trendy area of Christiania. We attended this trade show with a group of Finnish design companies representing everything from furniture design to organic farming.

We showcased our Stackable Pino Glass series (awarded with the international GIA award), our naturally cooling Pet Bowls (awarded with the European Product Design Award) and the newest addition to our collection, the Vertigo Fruit Plate.

It was amazing to see both young and established Finnish design companies being featured in Denmark and getting an exclusive opportunity to network in the heart of Nordic design during the three-day trade show. Seeing these upcoming design companies making wonderful products with incredible passion was especially inspiring.
