We Live Here

Design Forum Finland and Iceland Design Centre, the two national design promotion agencies join forces and “move to Stockholm” for Stockholm Design Week. The pilot project WE LIVE HERE explores new, collaborative ways to promote Nordic design on international venues.

Iceland and Finland move in together in Stockholm After meeting regularly – “dating” – for the past few years, We have decided to move in together to a city ‘in-between’, to Stockholm, Sweden during Stockholm Design Week 2015.

Our home doubles up as exhibition and event space. The home hosts a collection of superb contemporary objects, both known ones and new launches from Finland and Iceland, commenting on the way we live in the Nordic region today. Our home will also be a venue for intimate events – our housewarming party, dinners, after parties, breakfasts – during the design week. It will also be open for media and public.

WE LIVE HERE is a collaborative project by the two national promotion agencies Design Forum Finland and Iceland Design Centre in collaboration with Codesign. It is curated and designed by FROM (Elina Aalto and Marika Tesolin) and Hlin Helga Gudlaugsdóttir, with the visual identity by Siggi Odds. Creative consulting is by Sanna Gebeyehu of Codesign.
