On the way to LAX airport, our Uber driver who told us he was from Calcutta, taught us that in India, people call Mt Everest “Top of the sea”. Indeed! Our trip to Denmark is off to a happy start.
My husband Taku and I visited this same design festival last year. The event is noticeably bigger this year as the festival celebrates its 10th anniversary! With less Covid restrictions as well, there many more exhibitors and visitors present, which makes it more exciting.
3-Days-Of-Design takes place over 3 days, mid-week, which makes sense since it's geared towards professionals in the design world. We still managed to show our 11 year old son around the fair, getting him interested in various beautiful works, letting him participate in workshops, and occasionally, stopping by some touristic spots like the Round Tower! His childhood friend from home (who now lives in Copenhagen) was kind enough to take him to Tivoli after-school, a very nice treat! Our main reason for being at the fair is not to explore or seek out new merchandise however. We are here to help the HASAMI PORCELAIN team debut their new collection of HASAMI PORCELAIN plates, bowls and mugs! We are here to support as an exhibitor!
The 'Grey Collection' will be available in our store perhaps this winter, and more details including their availability in-store and online will be announced on a later date! For those who are in Copenhagen right now or plan to visit, the HASAMI PORCELAIN 'Grey Collection' was exhibited at a cafe called Studio X Kitchen for the whole duration of the festival. Located in the heart of Copenhagen, they have delicious seasonal dishes, pastries and drinks, and served them all in our 'Grey Collection'! According to Taku, many HASAMI PORCELAIN retailers from Norway, Canada, US, Switzerland and Germany stopped by and expressed interest in the new line, which made him very happy! Studio X Kitchen liked the line so much they've told us they'll keep using them even after the design festival! Thank you, Vanessa and chef George for your support!
We also saw some impressive flower arrangements throughout town, not to mention the impressive scenery and food as well.
