Swedish Federation of Wood and Furniture Industry (TMF) at the Stockholm Furniture Fair 2023: Boundless Swedish Design – Swedish export investments in a borderless booth

Dela
After a two-year hiatus, Stockholm Furniture Fair, the world's largest meeting place for Scandinavian design, is making a comeback as a physical fair. TMF is at the fair all week with the export initiative Boundless Swedish Design – both in a physical booth and on a digital platform. Three seminars and a tour with the Minister of Foreign Trade are also arranged.

“We welcome the international audience to the fair by showcasing a number of export successes where Swedish furniture and interior design companies have inspired the international market. Our member companies are circular and innovative pioneers and push the boundaries in every possible way”, says Cecilia Ask Engström, Director Industrial Development at TMF.

Among the seminars that TMF is arranging, topics such as circularity, synergies in the industry and the ambitions and challenges to changing the industry towards a reduced climate footprint, are discussed. In addition, TMF will arrange a tour with the Minister of Foreign Trade, Johan Forssell.

“Despite the pandemic and global challenges, the industry exports roughly 75 percent of its production, so there is a lot for the Minister of Foreign Trade to take with him in his export promotion work”, says Cecilia Ask Engström.

    Swedish Design Movement, C04:27, The Stockholm Fair

How to create the best interior design that solves the needs of the end user while managing to create a high architectural level that is sustainable over time? To succeed, the dialogue between the interior designer, specialist interior carpentry and the furniture manufacturers is essential.

Participants: 

  • Staffan Johnsson, CEO, Bröderna Perssons Specialsnickeri
  • Johan Lindau, CEO, Blå Station

TALK: Circular business despite linear regulations

  • 9th of February, 2.30 PM - 3:15 PM
    Swedish Design Movement, C04:27, The Stockholm Fair

From linear to circular, the green transition creates completely new business opportunities but also challenges when old truths are challenged. The wood and furniture industry has long taken the lead with servicification, function sales and circular manufacturing processes, but regulations and procurement directives are slowing down. Listen to Kinnarp's successful journey Circles of Change about the challenges that have put the brakes on. 

Participants:

  • Robin Ljungar, Sustainability Manager, TMF
  • Ann Cederwall, Director Global Marketing & Communications, Kinnarps

Moderator: Alexandra Hernadi, Communications Manager TMF

 

The digital platform "Boundless Swedish Design" focuses on the target groups of interior designers, architects, designers and purchasers of furniture for private/public environments. In addition to examples of boundless design on a new website and on Instagram, the theme "Boundless Swedish Design" is highlighted in relation to various design events, including Stockholm Design Week, Stockholm Furniture Fair, London Design Festival, Orgatec in Cologne and Design Week in Milan.

TMF välkomnar nytt räntebesked: ”Glädjande nyhet att prognosen ser ut att vända uppåt”23.11.2023 10:36:08 CET | Pressmeddelande

Torsdagens räntebesked, med oförändrad styrränta, är positiva nyheter för svensk industri i allmänhet – och TMF:s hårt drabbade medlemsföretag i synnerhet. Någon omedelbar konsumtionsfest är inte att vänta för svenska hushåll, men framtidsutsikterna har förbättrats i takt med att inflationstrycket avtagit och räntechocken klingat av. Nu spår prognosmakarna en ökad tillväxt nästa år, vilket är ett positivt besked för svensk trä- och möbelindustri.
