Blickfang Copenhagen 2012, where Design gets Personal

Thursday, October 25th, 2012
All designers and products at blickfang Copenhagen 2012 have been handpicked by the Copenhagen-based jury, aiming for the individualistic taste of an urban, design-oriented audience. All products exhibited at blickfang fairs are for sale.

All designers and products at blickfang Copenhagen 2012 have been handpicked by the Copenhagen-based jury, aiming for the individualistic taste of an urban, design-oriented audience. All products exhibited at blickfang fairs are for sale.

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).

Quality and diversity are key factors for the products exhibited at blickfang Copenhagen 2012, for example fashion designer Freya Dalsjö’s debut collection (pictured) appeals to strong, self-conscious women, whereas Jean//phillip’s men’s wear attracts attention for its use of minimalism and exquisite materials.

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.

When: Friday 9 November 4-10 pm, Saturday 10 November 12 noon-9 pm and Sunday 11 November 11 am-7 pm

On Friday 12 October 2012 more than 250 museums, galleries, political institutions and other venues all over Copenhagen and Frederiksberg will open their doors to expose the hidden sides of the city’s cultural landscape.

She adds: “The programme has no theme but grows in all directions enabled by the sheer force and imagination of the participants.”

Select Events in Frederiksberg
Some of the potentially most popular events in our local ‘hood, Frederiksberg, are bound to be the pop-poetic concert by Mouritz/Hørslev Duo in collaboration with indie veteran, Nikolaj Nørlund, at atmospheric Møstings Hus, the chance to sneak a peek into the HQ of the Freemasons at Sct. Andreas Ordenen, or joining Mayor Jørgen Glenthøj as he guides an intimate group behind the scenes at Frederiksberg Town Hall.
