An event offering architects, designers, bloggers and journalist from all over the world a chance to discover the freshest Scandinavian design around: you can find everything from promising design school graduates, independent designers  to established furniture and lighting companies.  Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Icelandic and Finnish participants aside, it’s worth to mention that 1/3 of the exhibitors are international, so it’s not all halla (hello in Swedish) and tack (thank you in Swedish).  Also, a number of design and music event take place in connection with the fair, so the city’s going to be buzzing!
