Closing Event at the museums location in Stockholm

After five years of operation, the museum has made the difficult decision to close its physical location. During its time in operation, the museum was able to showcase over 900 pieces of furniture from a wide range of eras, from the early 19th century to the present day.

This collection was able to attract visitors from over 60 countries, with a total of 22,000 visitors over the course of five years. In addition to its exhibitions, the museum also held a variety of events and workshops, including 11 exhibitions featuring furniture designs, 9 seminars with over 30 guest speakers from the design industry, and 115 workshops with design students from 36 art and design colleges from around the globe.

The exhibitions at the Möbeldesignmuseum were a highlights for many visitors, showcasing a diverse range of furniture styles and designs from the early 19th century to the present day. Each exhibition was carefully curated to provide a comprehensive understanding of the evolution of furniture design and the cultural and historical influences that shaped it.

The seminars held at the museum were also a key attraction, providing a unique opportunity for visitors to learn from industry experts and gain insights into the latest trends and developments in the world of furniture design. 

Despite the closure of our physical location, the legacy of the Möbeldesignmuseum will continue through our new archive portal website. This website serves as a digital extension of the museum, providing access to information and images about over 1500 pieces of furniture, as well as biographies for 350 designers from all over the world. This will be a valuable resource for design enthusiasts, students, professionals and researchers, allowing them to continue to explore and appreciate the world of furniture design. We hope that this website will serve as a reminder of the impact and importance of the Möbeldesignmuseum and its mission to educate and inspire through the art of furniture design.
