Fritz Hansen Presents EXPRESSIONS of CHARACTER at 3daysofdesign
At this year’s 3daysofdesign, Fritz Hansen presented a new exhibition, EXPRESSIONS of CHARACTER, located at Charlottenborg in the heart of Copenhagen. Visitors were treated to a diverse range of installations, featuring emblematic design elements designed to bring them face-to-face with both well-known and fresh artistic expressions.
The exhibit showcased the works of visionary design pioneers such as Poul Kjærholm and Arne Jacobsen, along with contemporary designers including Jaime Hayon, Sebastian Herkner, Cecilie Manz, Vico Magistretti, and KiBiSi. Patrons were invited to explore the newly launched outdoor furniture by Skagerak, a Fritz Hansen brand.
Marie-Louise Høstbo, the Creative Design Director at Fritz Hansen, shares her perspective on Danish design: “Danish design is formed from a dedicated consequence of purpose and space. In Danish we call furniture design; MØBELKUNST (literally “furniture art”) and the inherent connectedness to art through the Academy is unquestionable. Poul Kjærholm called himself a furniture architect and Arne Jacobsen wanted to be an artist.”
