For two days in May, more than 90 design companies and artisans invite in all design enthusiasts by opening up their showrooms and galleries throughout Copenhagen. Read more about the festival here. At the Swedish Embassy we show design from southern Sweden in the exhibitions "What's your DNA?" and SPOK Souvenir Collection.
What’s your DNA?
Meet 9 designers in the exhibition ”What’s Your DNA?” curated by designer Kajsa Willner. The works presented in the exhibition are based on a theme. The participating designers were tasked to try to manifest their own DNA via form, expressions and materials. In October 2017 the exhibition opened at Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven. The exhibition is being conducted in the framework of the export project Southern Sweden Creatives. Southern Sweden Creatives is a project supporting southern Swedish companies within the cultural and creative industries to grow their businesses through international exposure.
SPOK Souvenir Collection
SPOK Souvenir Collection consists of 10 locally designed and produced contemporary and sustainable souvenirs. SPOK - contemporary production and consumption – is a platform for production that aims to gather and spread knowledge about local manufacturing possibilities, ranging from handicrafts to industries. SPOK has Skåne as its starting point and aims to promote the development of local production and in the long term also a more local consumption.
LOCATION: Pop-up Embassy of Sweden, Sankt Annæ Plads 15A, Copenhagen.
