Scandinavian design is famous for mixing minimalism and function with style and innovation, and during Stockholm Design Week the spotlight is shone on the biggest Scandinavian designers as well as its future stars.

Scandinavian design is famous for mixing minimalism and function with style and innovation, and during Stockholm Design Week the spotlight is shone on the biggest Scandinavian designers as well as its future stars.

Due to COVID-19, this year's Stockholm Design Week will look a little bit different. The main event, The Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair, has been postponed (to return in 2022!). Instead, the week's activities will move online in a digital edition - with inspiring Design & Architecture Talks and discussion panels - and to various pop-up locales and showrooms all across Stockholm. The popular Greenhouse-exhibition, a showcase of tomorrow's design-stars, will also be presented in a digital edition.

And if you're new to Swedish design in need of a primer, we highly recommend Nationalmuseum's permanent exhibition, parts of which are available online. The museum has many classics on display like Bumling-armature's, Diavox-telephones, and Absolut Vodka-bottles, and the exhibition's chronological layout makes it easy to follow the evolution of Swedish design.

Below you'll find some of the events during this year's Stockholm Design Week. Check out their events calendar for a full listing.

Give your home some Scandinavian flair!
