Entering the Danish design market is no easy feat, and we decided to make it even more challenging by arriving on a sailboat and using wind power to get there. Our journey from Turku to Copenhagen took five days and nights, with the crew rotating in three-hour shifts. We had one stop to repair a broken rudder and spent nearly 24 hours at a castle on the Swedish coast. Not the worst place to have a pit stop, but it caused an unexpected delay.

Despite the challenges, we arrived in Copenhagen on time and enjoyed three incredible days of design. Thank you to everyone who made this possible and to everyone who joined us on Friday to celebrate. We are overflowing with gratitude and love!

Sailing to Copenhagen, 3days of design


Pizza breaks when the weather allowed (so not very often). 


The Lycka Yacht Society curated and brought together leading Finnish designers to create a unique and captivating exhibition for the 3 Days of Design event. The yacht was upholstered with fabrics by Johanna Gullichsen, furnished with products from Made by Choice, ceramics from Inge May Koskelin, the crew dressed in clothing designed by Samu-Jussi Koski, and the yacht illuminated by Light Cognitive. Studio Kanto also participated to ensure that sailor dog Sunny was comfortable. This bold collaboration was based on shared values, and the decision to sail using wind power aligned with the brands' commitment to sustainability.
