We live here

Challenge: Design a creative meeting space for Nordic designers during Stockholm Design Week 2015.

Assignment
Design a creative meeting space for Nordic designers during Stockholm Design Week 2015. Codesign was contacted by the Iceland Design Center and Design Forum Finland, to help plan and create a collaborative activity during Stockholm Design Week. The project challenge was defined as “creating a meeting space in the form of an exhibition that represents around 70 designers.”

Solution

The Assigner of the project wanted an exhibition that could both highlight exciting designs, but also work as an activity area. The end result was an exhibition at a private home in central Stockholm that provided a “real” feeling of home. During the week a press conference, lunch, workshop, and party were held at the exhibition. The concept of “We live here” should be exported to other cities in the Nordics, Europe and indeed the world, as it builds bridges and contact networks that support Nordic design.

Result

Almost 2500 people visited “We live here”, of which 140 were journalists.
