  • Underground museums  Not just subway stations, but now also art galleries under the city. Over 90 of the 110 stations exhibit the works of almost 150 artists, from the 1950s to today, including decorations, paintings, sculptures, mosaics and reliefs, for 110 kilometers of pure art. In the picture, the Radhuset station (blue line) with its characteristic cave shape.
  •  Arper at Stockholm Furniture Fair_Arcos is a name that evokes its design, whose hallmark is linked to the graphic motif of aluminum armrests that recall two paired curves. Reinterpreting the geometric appeal of Art Déco style with a modern twist, Lievore Altherr designs a collection of chairs that are ideal for public spaces ©Marco Covi
  •  Fantoni at Stockholm Furniture Fair_A collaboration with Metrica has resulted in Woods, a complete program of tables born from a reflection about new ways of working, offering a series of units that range from 'focus' desks to shared workstations, from meeting areas to collaborative areas. Wood is the star of the project, whose distinctive feature is a slanting leg consisting of two telescopic cylindrical elements that contain an electric mechanism that allows the height of the worktop to be adjusted
  • Republic of Fritz Hansen at Stockholm Furniture Fair_ A touch of fashion for one of the brand's classics: the Series7 chair, designed in 1955 by Arne Jacobsen, has been restyled by the lala Berlin fashion brand for a special edition, which will be available from October 2018.

  •  Kvadrat at Stockholm Furniture Fair_Real works of art descending from the ceiling or hanged to the walls, which evolve by adding more elements, with surprising three-dimensional effects.

5 FEB 2018
A new edition of Stockholm Design Week is about to start. Over one hundred events will unfold in the city culminating in the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair. For a continuous exchange between creative talents

The system that runs in and out of the trade fair backdrop defines the Stockholm Design Week, an event (from 5-11 February) dedicated to design and creative approaches defined by more than one hundred events in the city. Districts, galleries, showrooms, parties, "after fair" events, vernissages, museums and institutional events become an opportunity for exchange and analysis on the theme of Scandinavian and international design. There is Arflex that opens the doors of its showroom, mirrored - among many others - by Bolon and De Castelli who take the opportunity to inaugurate their new exhibition space; ditto Hem Design Studio or Astrid Studio & Showroom that offer astonishing exhibitions in their spaces in partnership with the designer Jessica Signell Knutsson and the Lightwork brand; to enrich the program, the WELOVEWOODS exhibition with a selection of furniture, lighting and wooden objects 'made in Sweden and Finland', then passing through the installation Think Yesterday, which celebrates the Nordic design’s masters of the 20th century. A must see, the stage at the Sandin.Bülow Möbeldesignmuseum for a journey in design history - through 700 pieces of furniture - Nordic and international from 1800 to these days. These are just some of the events scheduled for the Design Week, whose heart remains the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair event (6-10 February). This year the exhibition space dedicated to furnishing and lighting is flanked by an array of exceptional names and minds of the industry: from Paola Navone as Guest of Honor, to Luca Nichetto who created the Design Bar (within the Victoria Hall), through the Christian Halleröd design studio, author of Trend Exhibition.
