New at the fair
The Gallery Edition, an exhibition designed by stylist Sophia Bratt, offers companies appearing in the city during Stockholm Design Week a chance to also showcase a product at the fair, with an aim to strengthen the synergies between the city and the fair.
The Nude Edition is a new concept with a focus on sustainability and simplicity combined with high design ambitions. The section will see new products presented in an informative way on smaller, more uniform stands made of recycled materials, which will be reused on their return.
The 2023 Guest of Honour is the design studio Front who will be unveiling a large and inspirational exhibition in the fair’s entrance hall. Front is the first Swedish design studio to be named Guest of Honour at Stockholm Furniture Fair.
Both Stockholm Furniture Fair and Stockholm Design Week will boast a great line-up of specially invited international speakers and a number of guest exhibits. The fair also continues to run the Greenhouse, its international platform that brings young designers into contact with the industry.
Another new feature is the exhibition in Älvsjö gård, a historic building next to the exhibition centre that will become a creative platform for experimental and limited designs.
