Exhibition: Living in Sweden

Presented as part of Swedish Design Movement, Living in Sweden invites us to discover the many aspects of Swedish design, from the clothes we wear to the way we build our cities. Swedish design treads a path between ancestral traditions and contemporary challenges.

The exhibition takes place in a multi-facetted space, both inside and outside, and presents designers and companies who have actively engaged with urgent environmental issues. It extends from traditional wooden furniture and glassware – which has helped build the reputation of Swedish design – to today’s cutting-edge trends and innovations. Why not come and sit comfortably in one of the armchairs in the lobby, discover the secrets of traditional and modern glassmaking in the Salle Tessin, or try out the sports apparatus in the garden! As you walk through the exhibition, common threads will become apparent: the connection to nature and living things, the importance of wood, and a constant quest for quality and sustainability.
