Stockholm Welcomes Public for Week-Long Scandinavian Design Week
The week-long annual Scandinavian Design Week will set abuzz with over 200 design-related events, installations and parties running from February 5 to 11, welcoming the general public as well as designers and buyers. First held in 2002, the Stockholm Design Week has since grown from strength-to-strength, anchored by the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair, a trade fair that prides itself as the world’s leading event for Scandinavian design.
Among the programme highlights this year, Philips and the Swedish design group Ames Studio have designed their light house experience. “The Light House” installation will be located at Kungsträdgården and this platform is said to be an interactive space with a 360-degree perspective.
At the Jussi Pavilion (previously Galleri So) will showcase seven objects created by final-year design and engineering students, interpreting Ingmar Bergman’s life work. This year, he would have turned 100. Come evenings, the movies that inspired the students will be shown.
For the Möbeldesignmuseum (Furniture Design Museum) at Magasin 6, more than 700 objects created by Nordic and international designers will go on display as the architects Kersti Sandin Bûlow and Lars Bülow open the doors to their private collection.
Meanwhile, ArkDes (free admission) begins February 8 and runs through March 18, Young Swedish Design will display 20 contributions to product design, textiles, fashion, handicraft and furniture design.
