Dreamt up by national promotion agencies Design Forum Finland and Iceland Design Centre, We Live Here will feature the work of 55 leading designers from Sweden’s stylish neighbours, collaborating on a Home-Tail apartment.

Doors open on 3 February, and guests will be invited to immerse themselves in the talents of designers including Linda Linko, whose kitsch Radio Helsinki wallpaper provides a vibrant, playful backdrop, and Marý Ólafsdóttir, whose Kúlan porcelain cutlery stand adds the finishing touch to a complete piece of Nordic design.

‘Through carefully selected objects and projects, we compare, contrast and communicate Icelandic and Finnish design languages, our material culture, design industry, current topics and approaches to design,’ say curators Hlin Helga Guðlaugsdóttir, Elina Aalto and Marika Tesoli.

LS:N Global will be reporting from Stockholm Design Week 2015, which takes place from 2 to 8 February. Keep an eye on our SeedShows and Inspire sections for more on products from the show.
