About us

 

Designtorget is a destination for everyone who wants to discover new Swedish and Scandinavian design and designers. We have 11 physical stores in attractive locations in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmo, Uppsala and Arlanda and an online shop, to be easily available for our customers and give our designers best possible exposure.  

In all our stores you’ll find carefully selected Scandinavian design. You’ll find products for your home such as lighting, kitchenware, tableware, furniture and much more. Besides homeware, we also offer new and qualitative design in varied categories such as books, technology, jewellery, toys and accessories. We aim for our stores to be inspiring and we believe and hope that every visit will be an experience out of the ordinary.

 

Business Idea and Vision

Designtorget offers design products in inspiring environments for those who wish to discover design and designers. That is our business idea in all its simplicity, but it is a sentence with many dimensions.

Designtorget is a marketplace that enables Scandinavian designers to introduce their products to the market (Designtorget actually means Design Market in Swedish). We also sell renowned Swedish and Scandinavian design classics from established brands. In addition to that, our business idea strives to actually make a difference for Swedish and Scandinavian design. We want to support new, young and un-established designers and innovators and be an active part in Sweden’s future design scene and development.

More specifically, we regularly select new design products from both independent designers and established brands and market them in our stores. Each product is reviewed and approved by the Designtorget Jury. We lay a lot of importance into finding unique products that have high quality, good design and that are sustainable. We love creative and innovative products —always with a story behind them. The assortment changes a lot and how long a product remains in the assortment will depend on customer demand and on the agreement with the designer. We value highly our relationship with the designers and suppliers we work with.

Our way of working, and in many cases our unique assortment, means we are constantly looking for new talents and products that could become tomorrow's new design classics. You are always welcome to contact us if you believe we should work together.
