Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair

Design Week

Stockholm Design Week - design party of the year and everyone is invited
It is soon once again time for Week 6, which has become synonymous with Stockholm Design Week. The entire global elite in design and architecture will be in Stockholm to gather and see the latest in furniture and lighting at Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair. With the trade fair at the middle of it all, the entire city will be buzzing with around 80 events, installations and parties. Many of the exhibitions will be open to the general public.

The first-ever Design Week was held in 2002 and today it consists of more than 80 design-related events held at different locations around the city. By combining Stockholm Design Week and Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair, Week 6 has been written into the calendars of buyers, architects, designers and journalists from all over the world.

“Design Week functions as a meeting place for the industry even outside of Stockholmsmässan's halls. It is important to us that our visitors get as positive a total experience from the week as possible. It is also a party for all the design-lovers out there, since many of the exhibitions are open to the general public. As the initiator behind Stockholm Design Week, we are pleased that the week is growing and developing,” says Cecilia Nyberg, Event Manager for Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair and Stockholm Design Week.

Here are some of the exhibitions that are open to the general public:
Nomadic design practices – a cooperation between Glimpt, a Swedish design studio, and the Romanian Cultural Institute, an organization representing Romany craftsmen from Romania, February 9 – March 4
The project, which was developed in 2015 between Glimpt and Romany craftsmen, reflects the contemporary nomad. Nomadism, which traditionally has been viewed as a collective state of separation and movement, has also historically been one of the primary causes behind cultural exchanges. In today's world, where geographic borders are being both erased and made clearer, the modern nomad becomes an even more relevant topic.

Designer of the year: Note Design Studio, ArkDes, February 10–28 In conjunction with Stockholm Design Week, ArkDes and Residence Magazine are creating an exhibition for the Designer of the Year: Note Design Studio. Note Design Studio was named Designer of the Year in Residence’s 2015 Stora Formpris design awards, and the exhibition is curated by Lotta Agaton, stylist and Creative Director at the magazine. The exhibition is an interpretation of Note Design Studio's broad production and activities and also highlights aesthetic values and the role of design in a home.

“For ArkDes, Stockholm Design Week is a must. It gives us the opportunity to offer our public a glimpse of the most interesting developments in Swedish design right now,” says Karin Åberg Waern, Audience Head at ArkDes.

Other exhibitions open to the general public include: Form Us With Love, Konstakademin, February 4-12; Folkform Revolving Bookcases and Archivers, Rönnells, February 10-27; Swedish design classics at Stockholms Auktionsverk, February 8-13; Staffan Holm, Anamorph Objects at Designgalleriet, February 10-26 and Svensk Form and PechaKucha at Berns, February 9.

The trade fair publishes “The Official Guide to Stockholm Design Week”, which is also available as an app and a website, www.stockholmdesignweek.com. The guide lists all of the week's events as well as tips to Stockholm's best shopping, restaurants and bars. Official hashtags to use and follow are #2016sff and #2016sdw.

Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair will be held on February 9-13, 2016 at Stockholmsmässan.

The general public will be welcomed to the fair on Saturday, February 13.
