Highlights from Stockholm Design Week

In February, the entire Swedish capital was buzzing as Stockholm Design Week ran with a wide range of inspiring events. Troldtekt participated in this major design fair and at several events around the city.


Stockholm was full of events, exhibitions, open showrooms and other experiences for design enthusiasts throughout week 6. Visitors were able to meet and experience Troldtekt in several places during the week.

The aim of Stockholm Design Week is to promote Scandinavian design internationally, including at the recurring Stockholm Furniture Fair, Scandinavia’s largest event for furniture, lighting design and architecture. But there are also many other exciting events visitors can take part in with the focus on design.



Architect exhibition: Troldtekt acoustic solutions at the Stockholm Furniture Fair

Jordens Arkitekter participated in the Stockholm Furniture Fair with their stand themed 'Farming Architects' on the future integration of the architecture we live in and the farms that produce our food. In a 300-square-metre pavilion built from hemp building elements, guests could experience everything from large-scale residential buildings to senior housing and log cabins, built in interaction with agriculture in and outside cities and towns. Jordens Arkitekter focused on the process rather than the finished buildings on their stand.

They had selected Cradle to Cradle Certified® Troldtekt acoustic panels based on the CO2 -reduced cement type FUTURECEM™ as one of their stand’s products.

"We are very pleased that Troldtekt was present at the fair. We love the material and even build all our display screens with Troldtekt acoustic panels to showcase our projects. Troldtekt’s sustainability philosophy is in line with Jordens Arkitekter’s objectives, and Troldtekt fits in perfectly as the building material of the future," says Jacob Wallér, founder of Jordens Arkitekter.

The 300-square-metre stand attracted a lot of attention and also attracted many visitors to a discussion about acoustics and design with Linus Mollberg, Area Sales Manager at Troldtekt AB.


Seminar: Building for all the senses?

How do materials, smells, light, colour and acoustics affect our learning? That was the main theme of a morning seminar at the Danish Embassy in Stockholm, which Troldtekt co-organised. The event was fully booked with a waiting list and featured presentations from:

  • Klaudio Muca, R&D Architect, CEBRA Architecture
  • Jonas Kjellander, Architect, Sweco Architects
  • Tina Snedker Kristensen, Head of Sustainability & Communications, Troldtekt A/S
  • Moderator: Stéphane Vindum Barbou des Places, Danish Embassy in Stockholm


The morning’s keynote speech was by Klaudio Muca, who talked about the WISE research project. CEBRA has investigated how architecture can promote lifelong learning in schools and at the workplace in the course of the WISE research project. The project incorporates ideas from leading thinkers in education and entrepreneurship, building on research in areas such as cognitive psychology.

Jonas Kjellander talked about architecture for lifelong learning, focusing particularly on learning environments and social sustainability.

Tina Snedker Kristensen gave a presentation on the impact of materials on the indoor climate – focusing on acoustics, material health and Troldtekt’s work with the Cradle to Cradle concept.


Two intimate showroom events at Studio B3

Design enthusiasts were also able to meet Troldtekt in Studio B3 – on Barnhusgatan in the heart of Stockholm. Studio B3 is Stockholm’s largest showroom with 36 exhibitors within furniture, lighting and other interiors.

During Stockholm Design Week, the showroom invited guests to two informal networking events, 'Music & Mingle' and 'After Fair Evening'. Troldtekt is a permanent part of the exhibition at Studio B3 on a floor that is currently undergoing renovation. But even though the permanent stand is currently dismantled, visitors were able to experience Troldtekt acoustic solutions in the form of a wall with the Troldtekt rhomb design solution in yellow shades.

Visitors were also able to meet Troldtekt consultants for an informal talk about acoustics and design at both networking events.


Stockholm Design Week took place 5–11 February 2024.
