The same week as Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair, Stockholmsmässan also organizes Stockholm Design Week, presenting more than sixty high-profile design events at various venues around the city. The first design week was launched in 2002, and today this theme week has supported Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair in making Stockholm a must-place to be for purchasers, architects, designers and journalists during week 6 each year.
“The design week serves as a meeting place for promoting the furniture and lighting design industry in Scandinavia that extends well beyond Stockholmsmässan’s walls. It is important to us that our visitors get as positive an overall experience of the week as possible. Business and deals are done during the day, while the evenings are intended for mingling and parties in the city. As the organizer of Stockholm Design Week, we are delighted to see the week develop and grow in this way,” says Cecilia Nyberg at Stockholmsmässan who is Event Manager for Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair and Stockholm Design Week.
Examples of events during previous design weeks include receptions, dinner parties, “after fair” meetings, vernissage cocktails and open houses at a wide variety of showrooms, design schools, restaurants and studios. To further promote the design week experience, visitors are provided with a special guide “The official guide to Stockholm Design Week” presenting all the events together with suggestions to the best shopping, restaurants and bars all over Stockholm.
All in all, the Stockholm Design Week has developed into a melting pot where just about everyone in anyway connected to or interested in Scandinavian design meet and thrive, bringing home new impulses, contacts and inspiration.
