stockholm furniture & light fair postponed due to COVID-19
due to the rise of COVID-19 in several countries, stockholm furniture & light fair has been postponed from february to september 6-9, 2022. the decision to temporarily move the stockholm furniture & light fair to september is based on when other design fairs and activities are taking place internationally during the year, as well as on the access to the premises at the fair ground stockholmsmässan.
‘we are an international fair with exhibitors and visitors travelling here from all over the world, including our neighbouring scandinavian countries,’ says hanna nova beatrice, project area manager for stockholm furniture & light fair and stockholm design week. ‘we have great interest and engagement for the 2022 edition of the fair, but we need to move it forward due to the current situation in the world.’

stockholm design week scheduled to run as normal in february
while the stockholm furniture & light fair has been postponed, stockholm design week (which is also arranged by the fair) is scheduled to run as normal in february 7-13, 2022, in accordance with prevailing restrictions. exhibitions and activities in the city will be listed in the stockholm design week’s app, making it easy for visitors to get around in the city. stockholm design week will have its official hub in östermalm in stockholm and curate an exhibition at a museum in the city. stockholm design & architecture talks, with the theme being a game changer, will be aired digitally in connection with stockholm design week 2022.
‘many of the planned exhibits and activities during stockholm design week can still be carried out and therefore it still feels relevant to go ahead with the design week in the city. we have a press programme and welcome the international press who are able to travel, but of course we follow the prevailing restrictions,’ hanna nova beatrice concludes. stockholm furniture & light fair 2019 | image by gustav kaiserexhibitor materia’s stand at stockholm furniture & light fair 2012 | image by stockholmsmässan
