At the Furniture Fair itself, we inaugurate the UNG Swedish Design exhibition at 3 o'clock in the afternoon, and in the evening we move on to Berns Salonger for a full night:

Closing the Material Gap – Behave!
A  special talk on future materials during Stockholm Design Week. Arik Levy, the guest of honor at Stockholm Furniture Fair, will together with researchers and fellow designers share insights and visions on the behavior of materials.
Time: 18.00 – 19.30, Tuesday February 8
Place: Kammarsalen på Berns, Berzelii Park, Stockholm
The design industry is confronted with the challenge of finding a new path for a more sustainable development. One way to achieve this is through new and more sustainable materials. But how do we want future materials to behave?
The discussion is part of a long term process to bring disciplines and knowledge together. The aim is to create a platform for creative collaboration between researchers and practitioners.
