the 2014 stockholm designboom mart is the 33rd edition (and the sixth in the swedish capital) of its kind, after reaching a celebratory milestone in 2013 — the 30th edition of our designboom mart was held at the ICFF in new york, the same venue where the mart concept debuted in 2005. in pioneering the marts, we brought new life to the culture of pop-up exhibitions. now a fixture at major design festivals, and seen throughout the largest cities in the world, these showcases offer young designers a way to jump start their practice into a professional design career.

many talents who were discovered in the previous shows have gone on to become some of the biggest names in the industry. one of them is renowned designer oki sato/nendo – who participated in designboom’s inaugural mart at new york’s ICFF in 2005. designboom met up with oki sato at the stockholm furniture and light fair earlier this year, where he was announced to be the guest of honor of 2013. in the video below, he recounts the moment when philippe starck bought one of his first products–a volcano shaped tissue dispenser–during his involvement in the mart.

what are designboom marts?

the designboom mart is a unique interactive platform for emerging and established designers to test their new ideas. visitors meet the young avant-garde talents personally and become familiar with their work. they can buy self-produced or limited edition pieces directly from the designers. over the intense days of exhibiting and socializing, the designers have the chance to discuss their work with other like-minded professionals, customers, manufacturers, distributors, press and museum curators – verifying their designs and their packaging credentials.


not only is participating in the designboom mart a fantastic way to promote yourself! it is also about socializing, meeting new people from different countries, making friendships, … plus, it is a fun way to visit and discover a new city!
