17 students are admitted to Stockholm after a in-house selection. Apart from designing prototypes and concepts, the students also design and build their own stand. It all starts on Wednesday 7 February 2007.

 

 

 

Going to Stockholm: spacesaving chairs by Atle Tveit.

Going to Stockholm: "Bat" by Irene Birkeland.

Going to Stockholm: "Copenhagen" by Lars Tornøe.

The works by KHiB students are on display in a special part of the large trade show known as the "Greenhouse". Greenhouse is the special section for selected international design schools and newly-qualified designers - individuals with more creative energy than financial muscle. The aim is to create the opportunity for exciting meetings and fruitful partnerships between the industry of today and the design profiles of tomorrow.

It is Professor Dave Vikøren and Professor Petter Bergerud at Dept of Design that hold the pressure up and sort out the practical problems. A large group of BA students at design will be travelling over to see and experience the Stockholm Fair.
