Il design finlandese con i suoi designers e le sue aziende saranno presenti a Stoccolma
nell’ambito della Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair (3.-7.2.2015)
la più grande fiera del mobile e dell’illuminazione di design della Scandinavia e della Stockholm Design Week (2.-8.2.2015)
che si svolge parallelamente alla fiera animando la capitale svedese con eventi e feste.
Nell’ambito della Stockholm Design Week
, avrà luogo “WE LIVE HERE”
, un’originale mostra/evento organizzata all’interno di un appartamento nel centro storico di Stoccolma
che, dal 1 all’ 8 febbraio 2015
, presenterà le ultime tendenze del design finlandese insieme al design islandese.
La mostra, curata dall’islandese Hlin Helga Guðlaugsdóttir
e dalle finlandesi Elina Aalto e Marika Tesolin
, ha l’obiettivo di trovare nuove strade di cooperazione per la promozione del design.
Le curatrici affermano:
“Through carefully selected objects and projects we compare, contrast and communicate Icelandic and Finnish design languages, our material culture, design industry, current topics and approaches to design.
Through our work, certain strong themes started to emerge, forming pairs and groups within the home and guiding the selection process. This is by no means a complete rendering of the Finnish and Icelandic design scenes, but an attempt to paint the spectrum in broad strokes.
Our aim has been to highlight what is interesting now, rather than “newness” which tends to dominate design discussions, aspiring to reveal the strongest potentials and relevance of Finnish and Icelandic designers on the Nordic design scene today.”
"The exhibition covers all aspects of design, just like design is incorporated in all aspects of our everyday life, including furniture, products, food and fashion".
"The exhibition focuses on the act of moving, playing with pairs of items, ‘doubles’ that often occur when two people move in together, and communicates the different themes that occur in Finnish and Icelandic design today".
Oltre alla mostra, l’appartamento in Regeringsgatan 86
, aperto al pubblico Martedì 3.2. 11-16, Mercoledì 4.2. 11-16, Venerdì 6.2. 11-16
, ospiterà anche una serie di eventi e workshops.
Il team di WE LIVE HERE dice:
"We welcome everyone to visit us in our Stockholm home. Pop by for a fika, have a chat and take a look around. We believe design is for everyone! The concept of home touches our hearts and is relevant to us all, regardless of profession or age.”
