During Summer Design Week - August 17-23 - parts of Stockholm will be filled with lovely design events. Here, design enthusiasts, designers, producers and press gather to discover design news, participate in exciting panels, workshops and mingles, meet industry colleagues and do business. This is also the week when Formex, from Volvo Studio Stockholm in Kungsträdgården, will highlight Scandinavian design and upcoming trends.
Each season, Formex presents three different trend themes and had this been a regular Formex in August, stylist Tina Hellberg would have interpreted the trends in a trend exhibition at Stockholmsmässan. Instead, we move the trends to the city and welcome design enthusiasts to experience a trend exhibition that visualizes the trends: New Now, Translucent and Dreamscape. Guided tours of the exhibition will also be held during the week.
Formex Pop Up Shop, which runs in collaboration with Lisa Karlsson from uMe projects, will also move into the city. In Volvo Studio Stockholm, visitors have the opportunity to discover a curated assortment from some of Formex’s exhibitors. Or buy a memory to bring home.
The Formex Nova award, which goes to a relatively unknown designer working in the Nordic interior design industry, will, as usual, be appointed by an expert jury in August. If you are in Stockholm, you can see some of their design objects.
