On the occasion of the prestigious festival, the illustrious Italian heritage in the sectors of lighting, outdoor furniture and architectural colors will be on display at the Residence

Once again this year the Italian Embassy in Copenhagen took part in the prestigious 3daysofdesign festival (June 7-9), hosting a group of Italian exhibitors at the Ambassador's Residence, an eighteenth-century building of inestimable historical and artistic value, located in the center of Copenhagen, in the immediate vicinity of Amalienborg Castle.

Organized in collaboration with the Italian Trade Agency and the Italian-Danish Chamber of Commerce, Danitacom, the exhibition in Residenza showcased the excellence of the Viabizzuno, Nardi and Novacolor houses, giving prominence to the illustrious Italian heritage in the sectors of lighting, outdoor furniture and architectural colours.

At its tenth edition, 3daysofdesign is the reference event for design in Scandinavia.

Experts and design lovers gather there to get to know and experience the best contemporary design can offer in the showrooms, shops, streets, laboratories and historic buildings of the capital. 290 exhibitors helped to highlight all the 'hidden' factors of design this year.

Where would we be without you? is, in fact, the key question of this 2023 appointment which involves many factors: collaboration between people, ideas, the vision of designers, the expert touch of master craftsmen, inspiration from the surrounding world, changes and challenges. This is what the visitors to our exhibition in the Residence were able to appreciate.

The participating Italian exhibitors:


A name that carries with it the birthplace of the founder. This design house works with light, and with it creates culture and well-being. Viabizzuno is passion, tradition, knowledge, experience, innovation and research.

A combination of forces aimed at expressing the full potential of light.

For Viabizzuno, light must merge with the architecture and with the space, it must be available to the man who experiences it, to create an authentic and recognizable image all over the world.


For more than thirty years, Nardi has been making resin furniture for the outdoors, suitable for both domestic and institutional environments. Characterized by simple and elegant shapes, Nardi products represent Italian design in the world.

They are, in fact, the result of research and attention to quality, study of shapes and materials, and are always born with a sustainable soul.

3daysofdesign will be an opportunity for Nardi to launch its new organic line of outdoor furniture, created using totally recycled plastic.


For forty years Novacolor has been "the colors of Architecture". Novacolor, now part of San Marco Group SpA, turns surfaces into works of art, offering high-quality decorative finishes for both exteriors and interiors, as well as coatings for contemporary architecture and old buildings, paints and continuous systems for walls and floors.

The colors and shapes of Novacolor arise from meticulous attention to research, development, the choice of innovative and high quality raw materials, with a vision aimed at the future, which for the company means a return to nature.
