Since the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair was held for the first time in 1951, we have evolved from being a local furniture fair to have become the world’s leading event for Scandinavian design, welcoming visitors and exhibitors from all corners of the world.
The String shelf, the Bat chair and Carl Malmsten’s comfy Farmor armchair all helped to furnish the Swedish home after the furniture made its big entrance at S:t Eriksmässan. The year was 1951, making Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair 2020 the 70th in a very long line. The fair’s anniversary exhibition, 70 years of Scandinavian Design, presents selected classics from seven decades – some famous, others less well-known and even a few future classics. Furniture, lighting, textiles… Timeless design through the ages, produced today.
The exhibition is curated by design journalist Dan Gordan.
