Bea Szenfeld and Kinnarps at Designgalleriet


In a unique collaboration, fashion designer Bea Szenfeld and Kinnarps are focusing on the workplace, with a result that is both humorous and retro-inspired. The exhibition 'Work Space' is on show from 5 to 23 February.

Each year, during Stockholm Design Week, Designgalleriet presents an exciting collaboration between a designer and a design company. In 2013 it's the turn of Kinnarps and Sweden's foremost fashion designer, Bea Szenfeld.

“For Kinnarps it's an exciting project where we have thrown ideas around and created new ways of doing things. For us, this type of collaboration functions as a source of inspiration for new  products and innovative solutions," says Paulina Lundström, Kinnarps Marketing & Communications Director.     

Bea Szenfeld, demonstrates both her craftsmanship and her characteristic love of vintage style in the exhibition. Products, ideas and scenographic installations designed around a number of themes have been created, all of them related to working life, and with a humorous touch.  

Stefan Nilsson, founder and creative head of Designgalleriet, says:

“Stockholm Design Week is an important week for us at Designgalleriet. We try to do something new each year. This year we're showing a  creative vision of the office environment of the future. It's both fun and innovative."

For the first time, Stockholm Design Week is being taken on tour around the whole country. Designgalleriet and Kinnarps have worked together to take 'Work Space' to eight locations in Sweden. In Örebro, Växjö, Malmö, Luleå, Falun, Kinnarp, Stockholm and Gothenburg, from 5 to 10 February, the public will have a taste of the creativity of  the capital.

“We don't only want Stockholmers to be able to see our creative collaboration  with Bea and Designgalleriet, so we decided to open small-scale mini-exhibitions in some of our Kinnarps showrooms. It's a way of bringing the inspiration and creativity of Stockholm Design Week to more people, up and down the length of the country," says Paulina Lundström.  

The exhibition 'Work Space' lasts from 5 to 23 February at Designgalleriet in Stockholm, and during the same period in the other locations. Designgalleriet's opening hours: Tuesday – Friday 11 a.m. – 6 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
