Greenhouse at Stockholm Furniture Fair is looking for projects from emerging designers

Promotion: Applications are open until September 16 for design schools and emerging designers who want to showcase their work at Greenhouse, a space at the Stockholm Furniture Fair taking place in February 2023.

The Stockholm Furniture Fair is the “world’s premier meeting place for Scandinavian design”, and after a two-year absence due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it returns to the Swedish capital in February 2023.

The show features a range of brands and exhibitors, 80% of which come from Scandinavia.

Greenhouse is a space at the fair that showcases projects from unestablished designers and is intended as a springboard for designers to gain experience at a design fair, meet key members of the industry and further their careers. .

Greenhouse seeks furniture and lighting projects that meet three key criteria: curiosity, innovation and sustainability. Candidates will be evaluated by a jury composed of recognized personalities from the architecture and design industry.

According to Stockholm Furniture Fair, several greenhouse designers made their breakthroughs as a result of the fair, including Oki Sato from Nendo, GamFratesi, MSDS, Afteroom and Front.

“Many designers have seen their products go into production through contacts made at the event,” said Jennifer Gröhn, project manager at Greenhouse.

“It’s a great chance to attend a real design fair and exhibit among many great design brands while you’re still at the start of your career.”
