The Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair is scheduled to be held on February 9-13, 2016. In conjunction with exhibiting designs from international companies, the fair also arranges a forum for knowledge and discussions in the area of design and architecture – Stockholm Design Talks.
This year, Stockholm Design Talks is going to present several well-respected firms and lecturers to talk about architecture in Scandinavia and the world. Participants include Jenny B. Osuldsen from Norwegian architecture firm Snøhetta and Shohei Shigematsu from OMA in New York.
Jenny B. Osuldsen is a partner at Snøhetta and a professor in landscape architecture at the University of Life Science in Ås, Norway. Snøhetta works constantly to reinvent design by using creative processes, analogue and digital tools and new challenges in “the green shift”, which affects and pushes the work into the future. This will be discussed by Jenny at Stockholm Design Talks using different project examples.
Shohei Shigematsu, CEO of OMA New York, will discuss OMA’s international work in architecture, urbanism and cultural analysis. A selection of projects from OMA’s office in New York will be presented at Stockholm Design Talks that explores new parts and hybrids of architecture typologies, from food markets to raised parks and urban water strategies.
Other speakers who have confirmed their participation at Stockholm Design Talks include: Bolle Tham and Martin Videgård, founders and architects of Tham & Videgård Arkitekter, Stockholm; and Julien de Smedt, founder and CEO of JDS Architects, Copenhagen.
