Stockholm Furniture Fair is the meeting centre and cross-border procurement platform dedicated to Scandinavian design. It’s an influential trade fair that sets the major trends for the year, which will fly all over the world. Near 80% of exhibitors are companies based in Scandinavian countries so you get the most authentic representation of the design movement. To date, no other event has the same concentration of Scandinavian design companies in the same place. This reflects in the type of visitors that regularly attend and make purchases. In addition, Stockholm Design Week is held alongside Stockholm Furniture Fair and presents visitors with a variety of design events all over the city.
The exhibition halls feature the full value chain of furniture and lighting models for every room in home environments. This is in addition to series of pieces meant for public places. Organisers are inclusive and create the right environment for new designers as well as collectibles. For the first time in 2023, the Stockholm Furniture Fair will launch Älvsjö gård – a new platform that’s geared towards experimental, research driven and collectible design. The feature is housed at the Älvsjö gård, which is one of the oldest existing manors in Stockholm, right next door to the exhibition centre. The exhibition space is limited. Organisers invite contemporary galleries, design dealers, producers and independent interior designers to blur the lines between furniture and art in fresh new ways.
Each edition has a Guest of Honour. In 2023, organisers recognise the exceptional work of design studio Front based out of Sweden. The duo, Sofia Lagerkvist and Anna Lindgren, have previously been featured in the Greenhouse area for young talents. Their singular point of view is focused on furniture design as an art form.
Who Are You Going to Meet?
The audience for the Stockholm Furniture Fair work in all related fields of furniture and design. In addition to the established designers and breakthrough creative talents, you’ll also connect with CEOs and decision makers working in import, retail and distribution. They come to place orders and source new suppliers.
In terms of exhibitors, you have a diverse lineup from Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland. The most interesting participants are showcased at the Greenhouse feature, which highlights the future of furniture design. The showcase sees new design processes, contemporary and innovative solutions, and prototypes. The goal is to promote growth, introduce interesting ideas and highlight the work by independent designers (Felicia Larsson, Gustav Winsth, Human Error, Jenni Inciarte Villaverde, IO LINE AND ROUND and JLM-form) and designer schools (Capellagården, Aalto University - School of Arts, Design & Architecture, Academy of Art Szczecin, Beckmans College of Design, Grebbestads Folkhögskola and Handarbetets Vänner).
Additional Value of Attending
The supporting programme has something for everyone. The Stockholm Furniture Fair Talks have the most celebrated names and experts in the industry share their perspective on the future and wellbeing of design. Keynote speakers include Sabine Marcelis, Anders Lendager, Stephen Burks, Viktoria Millentrup, Slava Balbek, Ilse Crawford, Philippe Malouin, Raw Edges and finally Marcus Engman.
Another very important feature is the mentorship programme that’s tied to the Greenhouse. There are so many obstacles to newcomers to make an impact, learn and find their footing. This is where mentors come in. There’s great history between mentors and newbies in furniture making and the Stockholm Furniture Fair wants to keep this tradition alive by giving young designers the chance to learn from experienced key persons. If you’re exhibiting at the Greenhouse, you might get selected as a mentee by one of the five designers. For 2023, these are Agneta Stake (Founder and Creative Director, Nola Industrier), Benny Hermansson (Owner, CEO and Creative Director, GemlaFabrikers AB), David Ericsson (Designer), Sandra Adrian Asplund (Creative Director, Aspund) and Thomas Bernstrand (Designer).
The final surprise for the 2023 edition is the launch of the Scandinavian Design Awards. The idea is to recognize the incredible work done in architecture, interior design and design in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland. The eight categories are:
- Architecture of the Year
- Furniture of the Year
- Interior detail of the Year
- Designer of the Year
- Garden design of the Year
- Sustainability Award of the Year
- Rising Star of the Year
