designsydost_rgb_smallOk, it´s only the second time – I know, but anyway, I would like to think of it as a tradition. What? The annual Design Sydost Meeting for design in southeast of Sweden of course! Last year we gathered in the beautiful summer town Västervik (my home town). This year Design Sydost invites everyone to Eksjö in the heart of Småland, to the city of wood.

The program includes interesting speakers with diversified backgrounds. The theme will be Innovation, Identity and Design. First out is Jesper Ståhl, industrial designer and manager for Jesper Design in Jönköping, to be followed up by Marcus Arvonen, from IKEA Design Department, the designer trio Form Us With Love and finally Stina Sandwall furniture designer.

Furthermore it will be information from the designer business network Design Sydost, telling about the development and the future plans. Fiesta Eksjö will explain what happens when ”Music Sweden meets Design Småland”. The day will end up with a visit to the furniture design exhibition Design Småland 09, showing some master pieces from the province of Småland (not only Ikea).

So, what are you waiting for? Enter today! Don’t miss this opportunity to mingle with design collegues and design connected competence from southeast of Sweden. Meet old friends and get to know new ones!

For you who wants to stay in town, Fiesta Eksjö has organized rock at the stadshotellet from 20.00 – performance by no one less but the Perssons Pack!

Of course the arrangement is free. Find the invitation, program and map below.
