designboom mart goes to copenhagen!

our first mart exhibition in copenhagen, denmark will open on 27th of august at the bella center.

as always, designboom provides an unprecedented opportunity to meet the young avant-garde and become familiar with their work. 35 designers from all over the world will share know-how and discuss with with other like-minded professionals and people from different cultural backgrounds: customers, manufacturers, distributors, press and museum curators – verifying their designs and their packaging credentials.

if you’re in town come and visit us. CASH IS KING! the mart is a sales exhibition, where the international participants partially cover the travel costs through the sales that they make. for 4 days, visitors are able to buy design souvenirs™ (prototypes and/or limited edition pieces) directly from the designers themselves – all priced from (EUR) € 10 – €100 / DKK 70 – DKK 700 where: bella center center boulevard 5 DK-2300 copenhagen (see map)

opening hours: august 27 – 30 10am – 6pm thursday – saturday (trade only) 10am – 4pm sunday (trade and public)

the designboom mart is part of the cultural program of the CODE – copenhagen design fair, during denmark’s international design week 09.
