Designed to last

8 February - 19 March

The exhibition Designed to Last focuses on some of the most important issues in the design industry no: long-term, quality, production and material.

How are Swedish designers dealing with the subject of sustainability nowadays? What does sustainability mean to them? How should they feel about developing new things, and how do you create added value in a piece of furniture?

Designed to Last reflects some of the most important issues currently facing the design industry – sustainability and consideration of the environment – and gives the designers themselves the chance to describe how they perceive their role in today’s rapidly evolving throwaway society.

Designers: Fredrik Färg and Emma Blanche, Johan Carpner, Folkform, Calle Forsberg, Petra Gipp, Christian Halleröd, Massproductions, Melo, Emma Olbers and Carina Seth Andersson.

The selection of contributions focuses on new works and deals with such matters as quality, renewed production processes and material usage pointing towards a more sustainable world.

Curators: Karin Åberg Waern, ArkDes and Hanna Nova Beatrice, Residence
The exhibition is a collaboration between Residence and ArkDes and is designed by Norway’s leading stylist duo Kråkvik&D’Orazio
