Area for Design Studios – the platform for design studios and small-scale producers
For 2016, Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair created an entirely new area for established designers and design studios. The goal was to promote diversity in the industry and support designers' own small-scale productions.
- We’ve seen a number of changes over the past few years, resulting in designers and design studios, in addition to being creators for producers, now also running their own production lines. That’s why, in order to promote the diversity in the industry and to encourage the production of smaller collections, we’ve created a subsidized zone where design studios can exhibit their products. Never before has a platform dedicated to small-scale productions and one-off products been part of an event like this, Cecilia Nyberg explains, Event Manager for Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair.
This zone is open to all interested design studios throughout the world. In order to qualify as an exhibitor, you must have been active in the industry for at least three years. The zone is located in the Hall B and is for studios producing furniture, lighting and textiles for use in public spaces.
