Stockholm Design Week September 5-9, 2023

In 2002, the Stockholm Furniture Fair initiated Stockholm Design Week, which brings together buyers, architects, designers, and journalists for two weeks in the spring and fall.

The Stockholm Furniture Fair began Stockholm Design Week in 2002. It helps the fair make Stockholm the place to be for buyers, architects, designers, and journalists for two weeks in the spring and fall. The Stockholm Design Week will be held from February 6 to 12 and from September 5 to 9 in 2023.

Stockholm has a lot of places where design events take place, from galleries and showrooms to dinner parties, meetings after fairs, opening cocktails, museums, and cultural centres. Everyone who has anything to do with or is interested in Scandinavian design gets together and does well. They leave with new ideas, contacts, and a lot of inspiration.

Now that the event in February is over, we are looking forward to Stockholm Design Week, which will take place from September 5–9, 2023.
