DEFINING SCANDINAVIA -the trade show for Design & Living

Defining Scandinavia launched this January, exhibiting a well curated selection of everything within Design & Living. Situated in the trendy and historical Øksneshallen (used to be a slaughter house in the oden days) in Copenhagen, the show was an immediate success with exhibitors, buyers and press alike.

And now the next show is coming together! Season 2 of Defining Scandinavia will take place 8th – 11th August 2013.

Defining Scandinavia presents the most distinctive trends, and in the August 2013 edition they will focus on ‘Functional Moxie’. ‘Moxie’ is colloquial slang for courage, daring and spirit. Using the term ‘Functional Moxie’, Defining Scandinavia accepts the challenge, focusing on the way existing trends, put in a new functional context, addresses the genre of design and living. We aim to embrace functionality by daring to choose only value-adding everyday objects. Sounds interesting?
