More than 30 Icelandic designers and architects will exhibit their work at the Stockholm Furniture Fair and Design Week which both begin on February 7. The fair is among the largest in Europe during which numerous design events will take place.
The Iceland Design Center was invited to include the show “Icelandic Contemporary Design” in the Furniture Fair, a traveling exhibition which has promoted Icelandic design abroad since its opening at the Reykjavík Art Festival in 2009, a press release explains.
In addition to the traveling exhibition, design represented by the Icelandic companies Arkiteó, FurniBloom, Lighthouse and Sýrusson will be included in the fair.
Furthermore, Aurum will open an exhibition of jewelry and tableware in Stockholm’s Gallery Pascale and industrial designer Sigga Heimis will participate in a group exhibition of 20 designers in Bilogiska Museet.
Iceland’s Ambassador to Sweden will hold two receptions during the Design Week in cooperation with the Iceland Design Center where beer from the brewery Mjödur in Stykkishólmur, water from Icelandic Water Holdings and crowberry juice from Íslensk hollusta will be on offer.
