Stockholm Design Week was initiated in 2002 by the Stockholm Furniture Fair. It supports the fair in making Stockholm the place to be for purchasers, architects, designers, and journalists during one week in February and one week in the autumn. The Stockholm Design Week will be held from February 5, 2024, to February 11, 2024.

Stockholm Design Week incites everyone to a city buzzing with events, exhibitions, and open showrooms. Coinciding with the Stockholm Furniture Fair, Design Week welcomes everyone from all over the world to participate in design events and product launches in the city. The main goal of this one-week event is to push the Scandinavian design industry forward and to make design engage both professionals and enthusiasts alike.

Some of the participants of this year’s edition of the Stockholm Design Week are DESIGN HOUSE STOCKHOLM, KASTHALL, TAPWELL, and DAHL AGENTURER. Besides these participants, there would be a number of different exhibitions including the Foundation of Joy, developed by Bukowskis and Fredrik Paulsen.

At this year’s edition of the Stockholm Design Week, design duo Contem is showcasing their work with elm, now classified as an endangered wood species. Driven by the fascination for discarded materials, Jack Dalla Santa and Cristian Lind have been exploring the fate of the deceased elm in Sweden with the ambition of giving it a second life.

Elm, a material often overshadowed by more conventional Swedish woods, is seldom considered trendy due to its distinctive character. Initially, we were told it was too difficult to work with and that it didn’t lend itself to furniture-making, so we wanted to challenge that. With 700 elm trees felled in Stockholm this winter alone, the opportunity to work with this remarkable material is now
