Hem x 6, the Institut Suédois feels like home
After the reopening of the Institut Suédois public spaces in 2017, it is now time for the upper level apartments of the Hôtel de Marle to be revealed to visitors. These spaces host Sweden-based researchers, writers and artists during their residencies, aiming to provide a piece of home in Paris. Each of these six apartments (ranging from 22 to 38 square meters) will be rehabilitated by duos of forward-thinking brands and designers committed to sustainability, offering six variations of hem in a 16th century historic mansion, a hôtel particulier.
– Witnessing the creative process behind design objects from a to z
Swedish design makes another trip to Paris with this exhibition by the Stockholm Nationalmuseum from 2018-2019, whose purpose is to show the stages of collaboration between designers and manufacturers,from idea to finished object. Whether for furniture, tableware or lamps, all the different stages of creation are shown for about twenty objects, helping the viewer understand the evolution of the design as well as the steps to go from prototype to series manufacturing.
Swedish Design Moves Paris from September 8 to October 27 2019 is organised in collaboration with Business Sweden, the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in France, the Swedish Embassy in France and Visit Sweden. #SwedishDesignMovesParis
