More than 100 exhibitors from ten different countries will make the design fair, blickfang Copenhagen 2012, at Øksnehallen a hotspot for design lovers.
Acclaimed Spanish designer, Jaime Hayón, ensures the cutting-edge fair’s focus on quality and helps mix furniture, fashion and accessories into an amazing shopping experience for design savvy visitors.
The Personal Contact creates Blickfang’s Identity
“The personal contact between the exhibiting designers and the visitors at the fair is especially important to us,” says Jeanne Reeves, General Manager at blickfang Copenhagen 2012.
“Hearing the story behind the design objects from the designer himself is a very special and rewarding experience to many of our visitors, and helps create our unique identity.”
Every single designer at Blickfang Copenhagen 2012 has been handpicked by a jury consisting of local design connoisseurs, like Rolf Hay (Hay), Peter Bonnén (Muuto), Mads Nørgaard (Nørgaard Copenhagen), Mette Barfod (Editor at RUM) and Anne Lohse (Editor at Eurowoman).
Takes Design to a Higher Level
“In our globalized design world an exhibition format like Blickfang, where designers and manufacturers sell directly to the consumer, is an extremely progressive concept,” says Spanish designer Jaime Hayón.
“Lots of products lack personality and are frankly quite boring. When you have the opportunity to meet the designer in person and learn more about the design process it elevates the fair to a higher level.”
Jaime Hayón designs for world-famous brands, like Bisazza and Fritz Hansen, and advises Blickfang in creative matters.
