This week is a pretty cool time, since it’s Stockholm Design Week! Scandinavian design is renown worldwide, with innovations and ideas that marked decades. Until Sunday, Stockholm is the hub for many expositions, temporary galleries, workshops and more. If you are a fan of architecture, furniture design, or just curious about art and design, this week is for you!
Stockholm Design Week actually happens twice a year, once in winter and once in summer, and is aimed at discovering and sharing the latest design trends as well as discover Stockholm in a new eye.
Among the activities are special exhibitions at many museums, including the National Museum and ArkDes, an Architecture tour of Stockholm which could bring you to yet undiscovered neighborhoods, conferences and a design store itinerary, for you to discover the coolest stores and maybe splurge on a nice lamp or decoration for your apartment. The events take place mostly in Norrmalm, Östermalm and Vasastan, which are pretty close to KTH, and some of them are in Södermalm.
Stockholm is a very creative city, and events like Stockholm Design Week show just that. It is a nice way to learn new things about Scandinavian design, get some good creativity inspiration and enjoy the good sunny days while they last!
