"Sweden" at 100% Design

A broad and varied sample of contemporary design from Sweden – conveniently packaged and displayed – is offered at ‘100% Design’ in Tokyo. The selection gives a fairly all-round view of the versatile design scene in Sweden today: from traditional and well established manufacturers, to younger companies; from classic vintage products, to freshly designed things; and from large pieces of furniture, to smaller design objects.


 
Over the years, Swedish design has been the subject of substantial international attention. Natural materials, characteristic blond woods, powerful colors, simple yet sophisticated lines, and humoristic no-frills solutions have become synonymous with forward-looking design from Scandinavia. Add to that the recent trend of wonderfully playful solutions: newly produced textile patterns used on classic pieces, or old technique, patterns or colors used in entirely new contexts.
 
The Stockholm Furniture Fair has recently been rated one of the three most important in Europe. The ‘Sweden’ exhibit at 100% Design is a collaboration between the Swedish Trade Council, The Stockholm Furniture Fair, and the participating companies.
 
Please join us at ‘Sweden’ 100% Design, to discover old and new trends in Swedish design.
 
Make Sweden a part of your own paradise!
