25–28 May 2023, the third edition of Southern Sweden Design Days will take place – a new international design festival in Malmö. Southern Sweden Design Days invites visitors from all over the world to experience the best the creative southern Swedish design region has to offer. 

During four days, Malmö is filled with exhibitions, seminars, workshops and networking events in design, architecture and arts and crafts. Southern Sweden Design Days is organised by Form/Design Center.


Southern Sweden Design Days is aimed at a design-interested public as well as professional visitors. With a train ride only 30 minutes from Copenhagen, Malmö is a central hub for creativity, sustainability and culture. The participants are active in design, architecture and crafts and count both individual practitioners, offices, studios and collectives, producers and companies active in the field of design, colleges and universities, cultural institutions as well as industry organisations and associations.


Southern Sweden Design Days 'Main Location' is held in the old railway workshop Lokstallarna in Kirseberg. The locomotive sheds will be a gathering place for Southern Sweden Design Days, with over 6,000 m² of exhibition space, Main Location will house larger exhibitions, inaugurations and a live studio with seminars and panel discussions in front of an audience.
