Public Luxury

1 June 2018 - 19 January 2019

Experience new and experimental pieces referencing current social phenomenons created by some of Sweden’s most prominent architects and designers. Public Luxury is a forum in which ArkDes explores architecture and designs as tools for discussion and debate about our society.

Public Luxury is an exhibition about architecture, design and public life. A number of large-scale works, installations and projects will be displayed inside and outside of the museum on Stockholm’s Skeppsholmen, and will offer visitors a rich experience of design as a tool for highlighting and providing solutions to the societal challenges currently facing Sweden. The works have been created especially for the exhibition by some of Sweden’s leading designers, artists and architects.
