The previous entrepreneur event 'Nordic Buzz' changes it's name to CREATORS COMMUNITY. We experience great success and interest in the event from several European countries and the change of name makes the event future-proof.
Creative entrepreneurs from Northern Europe participate in CREATORS COMMUNITY at Formland Spring, where talent, creativity and entrepreneurship is in focus.
The purpose of CREATORS COMMUNITY by Formland is to support creative entrepreneurs fra Northern Europe by matching the participants with professional buyers, exhibitors and other entrepreneurs.
The CREATORS COMMUNITY area will be divided into four categories:

PIECE of DENMARK is a new Danish brand that won the price for BEST DESIGN at the entrepreneur event at Formland Spring in February.
The company is located in Aarhus and PIECE of DENMARK focuses on designing unique interior products with a perfect finish.
Their love for the craftmanship and focus on the choise of material and detail make their products in a class of their own. They constantly move in the borderline territory between design and the sculptural, and the products make an impression.
All products are Limited Editons and are produced in Denmark and Scandinavia.
"The Formland award payed a lot of attention both at home and abroad, and the attention has definately opened up doors and new exciting opportunities".
We have achieved new distributors and PIECE of DENMARK grows steady as a business. The design award has definately increased the interest from abroad.
"Winning the price was a huge recognition as well and gave us the energy boost to continue the business and product portfolio - and at Formland Autumn the design COGNAC made of glass can be ordered. New products are in pipeline and at PIECE of DENMARK they believe that creating outstanding products in high quality is the best foundation for creating durable products that last for generations. We believe that we as indivicuals need to be surrounded by timeless design made by talented craftsmen", says Susanne Holmvang.
Creators Community (previous Nordic Buzz) became the beginning of our business: Kjær Bak. We were overwhelmed by the many orders we achieved at the fair. Our business idea was acknowledged and the fair gave us the opportunity to start up new products. Being interviwed by TV-Midt/Vest gave us even further publicity.
Kjær Bak is a Danish design company that produces miniature accessories for Danish wooden design icons. The idea was to gather children and grown-ups in a game of presence and immersion - based on Danish craftsman design. The founders are Charlotte Kjær and Karen Bak and the range is being sold at www.kjaerbak.dk and in selected stores.
