Gammelmark adds: “The fact that Copenhagen is a mecca for design enthusiasts out there attracts an incredible audience to the show. Our Danish design history with names such as Børge Mogensen, Arne Jacobsen, Hans J. Wegner or LINDBERG creates a special context for visitors. Danish design is renowned all over the world for its clean lines and appreciation of high quality materials – tendencies that are also of the essence in contemporary design and international fine eyewear.”

Copenhagen Specs takes place on 5th-6th March 2016. Registration is now open at https://copenhagenspecs.nemtilmeld.dk/1/. Further information at www.copenhagenspecs.dk CN
