Arctic Design of Sweden is a platform which attracts unique, high-quality design from northern Sweden. Our mission is to support design companies with ambitions to establish themselves on the international market. This is done by marketing, events, networking and showrooms around the world. All the companies are from the Arctic region of Sweden.
In 2019 we arranged showrooms in Copenhagen and New York and we also planned for showrooms in Oslo and Paris during year 2020.
Due to the pandemic we have now decided to cancel the exhibitions completely unfortunately.
Instead we’re trying to do some happenings on social media, such as live talks together with companies from the Arctic region of Sweden. If you don’t do so already, please follow us on social media to keep you updated.
Designers connected to Arctic Design of Sweden are carefully selected and comes from different branches such as fashion, interior, pottery, furniture, food and beauty. For each showroom that Arctic Design of Sweden organizes, an exhibition catalogue. The project is financed by European regional development fund, Region Västerbotten, Skellefteå municipality and Region Norrbotten.
During the 2019 edition of the Danish design festival 3 Days of Design, Arctic Design of Sweden arranged a showroom at Sweden’s residence in Copenhagen. The exhibition showed, among other things, art prints, Sami crafts and cycling gear. During the week in the Danish capital, an exhibition was also arranged inside Illum Bolighus. In total, 16 companies participated from Norrbotten and Västerbotten. Here you can see some pictures from our exhibitions, photographed by Kristofer Johnsson/LINKDECO.
