stockholmEvery year, the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair hosts guest exhibitions and guest events to further shine a spotlight on Scandinavian design & architecture. In 2018, it will offer:

Den Nya Kartan: Halland

What can local manufacturers and designers achieve when they work together? The results are shown in the exhibition, Den Nya Kartan: Halland. The project was initiated by industrial designer and curator Jenny Nordberg to show that the global production map is starting to be redrawn.

Paviljongen Kärnhuset

Suburbia in Sweden has since its creation been dominated by the nuclear family. However, new family constellations and new ways of living and working promote interest in alternative ways of cohabitation, and a reborn fascination for ruralisation challenges the almighty urbanisation. Answering to this condition Tidskriften Rum proposes, in collaboration with the architecture practice Hesselbrand, a platform for discussion – a housing model which allows the qualities of urban life to flourish in the suburbs, in the countryside, in the future. Experience it in 1:1 scale in the Rooms House pavilion, and learn more about the project in the book Past, Present, Future.

A tribute to everyday life

The exhibition is inspired by the Danish poet Dan Turell’s poem about the beauty of everyday routines – and partly a commentary on the extravagance that, on many fronts, characterises the design scene today.

The organizer danishdesign MAKERS is an alliance of designers of different nationalities and backgrounds, but all with strong ties to the Danish design culture. This year’s exhibition features designs from 22 designers, which fit into an everyday routine from their private lives. MAKERS believe design is foremost a practical subject and that it is best kept this way.
