New features 2023

This year we have a number of new exhibition spaces at the fair, including the Gallery Edition, which aims to strengthen the synergies between the fair and the design week - and the Nude Edition, exploring a new and more sustainable fair format. We are also happy to have a number  of guest exhibitions exploring materials and waste, such as Now or Never and Closing the Loop. At the fair you will also find Swedish Design Movement in a space designed by Note design studio, with a dedicated talks program the whole week. 

The Gallery Edition

Welcome to the exhibition The Gallery Edition located close to the east entrance in hall C. The Gallery Edition is one of the the new spaces at Stockholm Furniture Fair 2023, with the aim to strengthen the synergies between the fair and the design week in the city. The gallery showcase selected news from participants in design week, in an exhibition beautifully styled by Sophia Bratt. This year you can meet news by furniture and lighting brands such as Fogia, Atelje Lyktan and Dahl Agenturer, as well as independent designers such as Katrin Greiling.

The Nude Edition

The Nude Edition is a new exhibition area with stands made of recycled material. The stands are small, measuring only 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 some exhibitors in Nude Edition 2023 include Reform Design LAB and Johanson. The material partners for the stands are Recoma and Tarkett. The Nude Edition is located next to the Gallery in hall C.

Closing the loop

The exhibition Closing the Loop by the 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 showcases art, furniture, lighting and fashion created by designers and brands such as Karim Rashid, Pierre Balmain, Swarovski and Julia Koerner. The exhibition Closing the Loop is made by Solaris Community in collaboration with Materialbiblioteket.

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