The Örnsbergsauktionen’s new home in the city centre is its biggest yet and sets a new precedent for its role during Stockholm Design Week.

‘When we first started, it was very unusual for furniture designers to self-produce,’ co-founder Kristoffer Sundin tells LS:N Global. ‘It has become a key theme in the design scene in Stockholm.’

Featuring the work of designers such as Hilda Hellström, Jenny Nordberg and Studio Swine, the exhibition is open to all, with starting prices from £0.08 to £775 (SEK1–SEK9,500, $12–1,120). Stand-out pieces from the impressive line-up include Lea Hein and Magnus Pettersen’s pigmented concrete, iron and granite table, and Lotta Lampa’s Ghost Mirror.
