Design House Stockholm opens new showroom at Götgatan 14 in Stockholm.
Sponsrat innehåll Vad är detta?
Design House Stockholm has found the perfect location for its showroom, event space and head office at the very heart of Stockholm. At Götgatan 14, once the home for Record-Teatern, one of Stockholm’s oldest and most spacious cinemas.
Götgatan 14, in the very centre of Stockholm, is our new home after many years in different locations. And Södermalm is spot on as the very apex of our Stockholm based design. Right here Götgatsbacken rises in a steep slope almost up to Mosebacke where August Strindberg situated his radical satire The Red Room that brought the young novelist immediate fame, and where one enjoys a wide view of Stockholm’s cityscape distributed on a multitude of islets. Greta Garbo was born just a block away some decades later, as well as much earlier on the poet and musician Carl Michael Bellman. And do not forget the philosopher Emanuel Swedenborg, which had his summerhouse here in the 18th century, or Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy, which is acted out here. Today quite a pedestrian Södermalm is full of fashion and vintage shops, cosy restaurants and beer gardens, while at the same time hosting a major part of Sweden’s architecture offices. Slussen is a new meeting spot in the city with a newly renovated City Museum, and with a new Nobel Museum about to be built. Another treat is Fotografiska showing photography from all around the world with an acclaimed restaurant. Södermalm is without doubt the very birthplace of a large part of a Swedish design sporting that unmistakable energy and easy-going attitude that characterize Design House Stockholm. Not surprisingly, a lot of our designers have their workshops in this former working class neighbourhood, and we surely aim bring along and show their diversity, expertise and standing at Götgatan 14.
