Stockholm Design & Architecture Talks is the forum at Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair for knowledge and in-depth learning, where people from the design and architecture industry across the world gather. The theme for 2019 is Challenges for the Future.

Stockholm Design & Architecture Talks has grown in significance since the talks first started, and today it is an important part of the fair. It is here that new thoughts and ideas are tested and questioned. The platform also offers knowledge about the most recent and most interesting projects as well as a forum for discussions with industry colleagues.

“The theme for the upcoming talks is Challenges for the Future. We will discuss topics such as sustainability, the future roles of designers and architects for solving forthcoming social challenges, and the challenges for design companies – topics that feel very relevant,” says Cecilia Nyberg, Project Area Manager for Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair and Stockholm Design Week.

One step in the continued development of Stockholm Design & Architecture Talks is also that Mark Isitt, one of Sweden's most knowledgeable architecture writers, will hold five exclusive program points with a focus on architecture.

“We will discuss topics that are highly relevant; we won’t avoid difficult topics but rather also touch on things that are slightly uncomfortable. There will be five panel debates, each with a strict focus on Stockholm – from a narrow approach we will comment on the world since each debate will have one international architect,” says Mark Isitt.

Stockholm Design & Architecture Talks will be held all five days of the fair on the stage next to Design Bar in Victoria Hall. Invited guests and speakers will be presented during the fall.

Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair will be held on February 5-9, 2019, at Stockholmsmässan.
