Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair, which took place last month, continues to strengthen its position as the world’s leading event for Scandinavian design. 

Of the visitors to this year’s fair, 31.5% came from abroad (an increase of +0.5% YoY), representing 99 different countries – with the top four being Norway, Finland, Denmark and the UK.

Interest and participation in Stockholm Design Week also continued to grow – a record-breaking 427 events were arranged throughout the city this year.

Cecilia Nyberg, event manager for Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair and Stockholm Design Week, comments: “It is fun to see that we are continuing to grow within international design. We are also very pleased about all the positive feedback we have received from both national and international visitors and exhibitors. Many have commented on the high quality level at the fair, and the open and pleasant atmosphere. 

“It is a meeting place for business, but we also fulfil an important social function. Our efforts to establish Stockholm Design Week – to add content to the visit to the fair and strengthen Stockholm as a design destination – has generated fantastic results. There were over 400 events during the week this year, which is twice as many as last year.” 

The next Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair will be held from 4–8th February 2020 at Stockholmsmässan.
