Stands at Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair

Stockholm Furniture Fair, February 6-10, 2024

We want to thank all exhibitors, collaborating partners, keynote speakers and visitors for a buzzing Stockholm Furniture Fair 2023! This year the fair attracted 26,498 visits, of which 525 were accredited media representatives. The total amount of visits during the industry days reached 80 percents of the visits of 2020. To open up on such a strong note after a three-year pause mirrors the power of the exhibitors, and the importance of the platform in order to attract visitors to Stockholm in a larger scale. Stockholm Furniture Fair also organised three media tours with journalists from a wide range of papers and magazines including Architectural Digest, Wallpaper, Dezeen, Milk, Ideat, Disegno, Intramuros, Elle decoration US and Frame to name but a few. “The pleasure of this year's Stockholm Furniture Fair was its promotion of Scandinavian design of all stripes,” writes Oli Stratford, Editor in chief of Disegno Journal, highlighting the research-based practice of the Guest of Honour Front and the experimental practices in the new Älvsjö gård platform.

Stockholm Design Week

Stockholm Design Week is organised by Stockholm Furniture Fair and in February 2023 about 100 furniture brands, design studios and museums opened their doors to a global audience in the city. The design week is open for professionals and design enthusiasts alike and the free Stockholm Design Week interactive app provides a listing with daily activities and events to join. In 2023, Stockholm Design Week is held twice, on February 6–12 and September 5–9.


How do we build and design for a better tomorrow? Stockholm Furniture Fair aims to offer a dedicated program with keynote speakers and inspiring design and architecture talks throughout the week. Amongst the speakers on the main stage for the 2023 edition were designers such as Sabine Marcelis, Stephen Burks and Raw Edges as well as architects such Anders Lendager and Victoria Millentrup from BIG.

Guest of honour

The Swedish design studio Front was the Guest of Honour of 2023. Front works in an art and research driven way and moves freely between the industry and the gallery world. The duo, Sofia Lagerkvist and Anna Lindgren, exhibited at the Greenhouse area for young talents early on their careers. The Guest of Honour exhibition they created for the 71st edition of Stockholm Furniture Fair will continue to Vandalorum, a museum of art and design located in Värnamo in south of Sweden.

Älvsjö gård

Älvsjö gård is a new platform for experimental, research driven and collectible design, set in a 16th century building right next to the fair ground. Amongst the exhibitors 2023 were Tableu from Denmark, Pyton Gallery and Kiosken from Norway and Stockholm Modern and Coulisse Gallery from Sweden. The curated exhibition New Narratives showcased new and unique work from a number of Swedish designers and artists.


Greenhouse is a platform for young design talent. For the 2023 edition, 32 designers and 30 design schools from 18 countries exhibited in the area. The Greenhouse Bar by Nola, designed by urban furniture brand Nola in collaboration with designers Anki Gneib and Mia Cullin, formed a central meeting point for new ideas and conversations as well as a stage area for panel debates and talks.

Ung Svensk Form

The 25th edition of Ung Svensk Form was presented in an exhibition Greenhouse during the fair. This year's line-up was brimming with circular ingenuity, - how to reuse materials and learn from nature as a problem solver.

The bar Underbar

The designer and interior architect Jonas Bohlin – behind many of Sweden’s most iconic restaurants and bars the last three decades – has designed the bar Underbar together with Christine Ingridsdotter. The bar was made from carefully selected materials that will be reused after the fair, and the furniture and new lighting showcased in the bar will find new homes in other restaurants and bars in the Stockholm region.

Now or never

What impact does our furniture have on the climate? The guest exhibition Now or never – 1 kg CO2e showed how different materials affect our climate impact, and what difference our choices make. The exhibition was organised by Emma Olbers, designer and sustainability strategist, together with the design and innovation agency EY Doberman. Doconomy, Polestar, Nrep and Ludvig Svensson were also participating.

Closing the Loop

The exhibition Closing the Loop by Solaris community – a circular-chain platform initiated by the United Nations ESCAP in 2019 – put a spotlight on the 11 million tons of plastic that end up in our oceans every year. With upcycling as a key circular economy driving force, the exhibition showcased art, furniture, lighting and fashion created by designers and brands such as Karim Rashid, Pierre Balmain, Swarovski and Julia Koerner. Closing the Loop is made by Solaris Community in collaboration with Materialbiblioteket.

The Nude Edition

The Nude Edition is a new exhibition area with stands made of recycled material, launched at the 2023 edition of Stockholm Furniture Fair. The stands are measuring 15 square meters, and the material will return to be recycled after use. The area is a step towards a more sustainable way of exhibiting and exhibitors in Nude Edition 2023 include Reform Design LAB and Johanson. The material partners for the stands are Recoma and Tarkett.

The Gallery Edition

The Gallery Edition is a new exhibition space at Stockholm Furniture Fair with styling by Sophia Bratt. The area is highlighting selected news from furniture- and lighting brands exhibiting at Stockholm Design Week in the city. With the aim to strengthen the synergies between the fair and Stockholm Design Week, it offers brands an opportunity to be present at both places and gives fair visitors a short cut to some of the news launching in the city. The material partners for construction and flooring in The Gallery are Recoma and Tarkett.
