September 2022 is the 72nd Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair. For more than half a century, the fair has been Scandinavia’s display window for design. Since the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair was held for the first time in 1951, it has evolved from being a local furniture fair, only featured Swedish manufacturers and furniture retailers, to have become the world’s leading event for Scandinavian design, welcoming visitors and exhibitors from all corners of the world.
Over the years, countless business deals have been created there, contacts have been established, new products have been launched, and both design classics and celebrated designers have been presented.
