The 3 Days of Design was arranged in September in Copenhagen and took over the showrooms with interesting events and novelties of the upcoming season. Finnish Design Shop's team was around of course – take a look at this autumn's favorite new products!
&Tradition: Flowerpot pendant light
Two new colors, called signal green and pale sand, were introduced to Verner Panton’s beloved Flowerpot luminaire series. We especially fell in love with the bright shade of green, which is a fresh addition to neutral interiors. The lively signal green seemed to be trending in general: the green color appeared alongside the striped Kavdrat’s fabrics here and there in Copenhagen.
Astep: Pepa table lamp
Made of ash, the Pepa table lamp by Astep works like a pepper mill: by turning the lower part, the intensity of the luminaire can be adjusted however you like. Designed by Francesco Faccin, Pepa is a fun light source for a dining area or kitchen, for example.
Brdr. Krüger: Jari coffee tables
The traditional Danish family business Brdr. Krüger launched new models for the Jari table series. The OEO Studio is responsible for the dynamic, round design of the beautiful coffee tables, which can be used in groups or individually. The Jari dining table from the same series was originally designed for Inua restaurant in Tokyo.
Carl Hansen & Søn: FK10 Plico lounge chair
The folding Plico armchair is one of Carl Hansen & Søn's new products. The lounge chair was presented in two different sizes and was designed by Preben Fabricius (1931–1984) and Jørgen Kastholm (1931–2007). The Plico features valuable materials: solid oak, brass, leather, and quilted linen.
Ferm Living: Oyster wall lamp
Ferm Living’s new Oyster wall lamp acts as an eye-catcher in the living room. The shade is made of recycled aluminum and its sculptural shape resembles the seashells found on the coast.
Flos: Parentesi floor lamp
In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Parentesi lamp, the Italian Flos introduced two new special colors: signal orange and turquoise. Anniversary Parentesi luminaires are delivered in a transparent and recyclable plastic package that highlights every part of the iconic piece designed by Pio Manzù and Achille Castiglioni.

Fogia: Velar sofa
Fogia's Velar sofa with a metal frame combines 90's aesthetics and straight lines. Above all, the low sofa is designed with a thought of comfort and ergonomics. The sofa has no armrests what makes it more open and inviting. The Velar is available with various different upholstery and is 200 cm wide.
Fogia's products will arrive to the Finnish Design Shop at the end of this year.
Frama: Shelf Library wall shelf
One of Frama's novelties is the stainless-steel Shelf Library, which takes the design of the shelf originally made of oak to a more industrial direction. A timeless, versatile, and transformable shelf serves in the kitchen, living room, and office – and due to its durable material, even outdoors.
Gubi: Unbound lighting
Designed by Space Copenhagen, the Unbound luminaire consists of a sturdy, grey marble base, a rotating shade, and a darked antique brass arm. The silhouette is reminiscent of a ship with a billowing sail. The beautiful Unbound is available in three sizes, and the shade charms in white linen, or natural canvas.

HAY: HAY House 2.0
The favorite brand HAY has spent time lately renovating its flagship store, HAY House, in central Copenhagen. There is now plenty of space, as two new floors serve the showroom and office purposes. All the season's new designs were on display, such as the products in the Muller Van Severen for HAY collection as well as the red Arbour Club armchair pictured above.

Louis Poulsen: PH 2/2 The Question Mark table lamp
Louis Poulsen’s fall novelties included the Patera Oval pendant and the stunning PH 2/2 The Question Mark table lamp, which is available for a limited time only. The original table lamp was designed by Poul Henningsen as early as 1931. The lamp is named after the question-mark-like body and fits well for the office desk due to its adjustable shade and glare-free light.
Menu: Brasilia lounge chair
The Norwegian Torbjørn Anderssen and Espen Voll designed the Brasilia lounge chair and ottoman for Menu. The chair has influences from the Scandinavian mid-century design aesthetics and Brasilian Modernism, which is where the name comes from. The lounge chair was originally designed for The Audo multipurpose space, where Menu's head office is also located.

Muuto: Cover bar stool
The chair family designed by Thomas Bentzen gained new members when Muuto introduced the Cover bar stool. The stool, which follows the characteristic design of the Cover series, is sturdy and comfortable to sit on due to the supporting backrest. The innovative, curved plywood backrest stands out beautifully.
Normann Copenhagen: Circa stool
Normann Copenhagen's new Circa stool series relies on the power of minimalism and considerate details: everything unnecessary has been stripped away. The end result is a durable, timeless, and beautiful seat that is suitable for a wide range of interiors. There are three heights and several different upholstery available. Circas were designed by Simon Legald, who is behind numerous Normann Copenhagen hit products.
Skagerak: Pelago outdoor furniture
Skagerak joined forces with Stockholm-based Note Design Studio and launched the new Pelago outdoor furniture collection in Copenhagen. Pelago includes chairs, extendable dining tables, and even a sunbed. The unifying factors are quality, timeless design, solid teak, and colors suitable for many environments. We predict great success for the Pelago collection!
Verpan: Pantop table lamp
Designed by Verner Panton in 1980, the Pantop table lamp delights in new colors that include glossy red and burgundy as well as matte blue and metal. Verpan's Pantop luminaires will arrive at the Finnish Design Shop this autumn.
Vitra: HAL Lounge chair
Vitra's autumn release is the very comfortable HAL Lounge chair with an ottoman. The HAL Lounge is Jasper Morrison’s reinterpretation of an upholstered, high-backed armchair. The lounge chair is as suitable for the reading area at home as it is for public spaces. The upholstery is removable, which further increases the lifespan of the high-quality chair.
