Every design connoisseur and industry professional should start the year by participating in the most interesting events on the market. Whether you are looking for state-of-the-art inspirations and innovations or networking opportunities to develop new projects, in this article we’ll guide you to discover the 5 unmissable design and architecture events that will take place across Europe in the coming weeks.
Each event of our selection represents an opportunity for professional and artistic growth not only for its wide and rich proposal of happenings and exhibitors but also because every event takes place in a different European city with its own specific gaze on the world of architecture and design.
MAISON&OBJET is one of the biggest fairs dedicated to decoration, design, and lifestyle for the living sector. The event is extensive and provides a vast program of three areas: MAISON, dedicated to the world of interior decoration, including lighting design; OBJET, a concept store focused on the product, and INFLUENCES, an area dedicated to new trends and creative inspirations.
The theme of the January edition is “Take care!”, an invitation for designers to bring consciousness to their work and to get increasingly involved in creating a better world.
If you are looking for artistic inspiration, BRAFA Art Fair is the must-see in January. The exhibition is one of the oldest and most prestigious art fairs in the world, with a proposal that includes high-quality art, antiques, modern and contemporary art, and design.
The fair lasts 8 days, during which you can attend the many Art Talks with the participation of leading figures in the industry and participate in the organized tours to get a deeper understanding of the exceptional works of art.
One of the must-see fairs in February is definitely Stockholm Furniture Fair 2023, the event dedicated to showcasing the best of Scandinavian furniture and lighting design for both public and domestic environments.
The interesting thing is that the fair takes place simultaneously with Stockholm Design Week 2023 – being both promoted by the same organization – and therefore it is a unique opportunity to experience the Swedish capital across the rich program of events, exhibitions and special events in the city.
Among the design and architecture events to visit in the coming weeks, we cannot fail to mention Madrid Design Festival 2023. The event reaches its sixth edition and continues its mission to transform Madrid into the new capital of design through a month-long program rich in events and exhibitions.
The fair is extremely transversal and is very interesting to explore thanks to its wide proposal that covers all design disciplines, from architecture to graphic design through communication or interior design, hybridizing all of them in a contemporary and innovative format.
Let’s conclude our list of 5 unmissable design and architecture events in early 2023 with a particularly interesting event. This winter, in fact, the exclusive festival NOMAD will come back to the snowy location of St. Moritz, setting up a unique opportunity to discover the new connections between art, architecture, and design in a very intimate setting.
Our advice is to join the VIP Program of the event, which will allow you to participate in a series of exclusive initiatives, such as the cycle of talks by prominent designers and artists, the architect-led tours of local landmarks, and invitations to private homes or collections.
