New perspectives

Sweden will soon offer a new design festival: the first edition of the Stockholm Creative Edition will take place from 23 to 29 September 2021 and is to be repeated on an annual basis.

Selected Swedish design is presented across the city in showrooms, studios, galleries and on pop-up spaces. Participants include established manufacturers such as Bolon, Offecct and abstracta as well as young designers from the Beckmans College of Design. A parallel programme of lectures, talks and events is planned. The gastronomic offer in Stockholm will also be highlighted in this context. The centre of the festival will be the Sergelstan district in central Stockholm. "We want to invite people to a new kind of meeting place where they can share knowledge, inspire and be inspired, and take pride in the Swedish design industry. Architects, designers, students, buyers, media and design enthusiasts – we’re creating the kind of event that we like to visit ourselves," say Ulrika and Philippe Attar, the initiators of Stockholm Creative Edition.
