Once again, it’s that time of the year for the annual Danish Design Festival, celebrating Danish craftsmanship and design with a range of exhibitions, events, business conferences and awards. We at DANISH™ are highlighting three events that you must not miss out on.

Open Workshop at Smalltime Woodshop (Copenhagen)

Stefan “The Wooden Man” Ravn has driven his own prototype workshop for the last three years. At the festival, Stefan Ravn invites you to join his cozy Smalltime Woodshop in the northwestern quarter of Copenhagen. Here, he will be crafting new prototype dining tables, benches and other kinds of furniture, all made of wood. This event takes place on Saturday the 26th of May between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
