Svensk Form presents “Swedish Love Stories” in Milan 12-17 april 2011
For the third consecutive year Svensk Form is organising the Swedish Love Stories exhibition during Milan’s Design Festival at the prestigious Superstudio Píu in the middle of Zona Tortona. Last year the focus was on Dalarna; this time we shine some light on Västra Götaland on an even larger and more ambitious scale.
Superstudio Píu is no ordinary show space, standing in a disused factory location in central Milan, called the Temporary New Museum. This year looks set to smash last years attendance numbers – which stood at over 120,000 visitors, including 3000 journalists, despite taking place under the imposing ash cloud.
Innovative industrial design agency No Picnic has taken charge of interpreting this year’s ongoing Swedish Love Stories theme. A large floating barn and topographical forms reference classic Swedish materials and the romance of our natural environment. Textiles, wood, glass and ceramics can be found throughout the exhibition, especially in the showcase of Västra Götaland. The aim is to give context to contemporary Swedish design and convey narratives about the country, the chosen region and the modern Swedish lifestyle. For the individual exhibitors this vibrant atmosphere gives them the chance to build new contacts, increase awareness while developing new export markets and customer bases.
”Come and sit in at the kitchen table in the barn, rest on one of the outcrops in our stylised archipelago or up on the balcony on recycled textile furniture. The theme of Swedish Love Stories is open to several interpretations; the love of materials, places, the people behind the products and perhaps even the creation process as a whole.
Being in the midst of the vibrant design week in Milan, is a must so that Swedish design can meet the world,” says Ewa Kumlin, MD, Svensk Form.
The development of this initiative has been supported by various partners including Region Västra Götaland, VisitSweden, and The Council for the Promotion of Sweden, NSU. Special thanks to No Picnic AB and advertising agency IK Stockholm for their extraordinary efforts.
