THDP designs Pigeon Post Bar and Eatery at Hilton Cologne
Hospitality experts THDP have revealed their design for the new Pigeon Post Bar & Eatery at Hilton Cologne, referencing the building’s long history as a post office.
Due to the risks surrounding the pandemic, Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair will now take place 6-9 September 2022, with Stockholm Design Week running as normal in February.
The decision to temporarily move the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair to September is based on when other design fairs and activities are taking place internationally during the year, as well as on the access to the premises at Stockholmsmässan.
‘We are an international fair with exhibitors and visitors travelling here from all over the world, including our neighbouring Scandinavian countries,’ says Hanna Nova Beatrice, Project Area Manager for Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair and Stockholm Design Week. ‘We have great interest and engagement for the 2022 edition of the fair, but we need to move it forward due to the current situation in the world.’
‘By moving Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair forward to September we hope to give more people an opportunity to participate, including those based in countries that now have a lockdown. After a two-year break it feels important to welcome as many exhibitors and visitors as possible in 2022,” says Sanna Gebeyehu, Product and Concept Owner, Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair and Stockholm Design Week.
Stockholm Design Week, arranged by Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair, will go ahead as planned on February 7-13, 2022. Exhibitions and activities in the city will be listed in the Stockholm Design Week’s app, making it easy for visitors to get around in the city. Stockholm Design Week will have its official hub in Östermalm in Stockholm, and curate an exhibition at a museum in the city.
‘Many of the planned exhibits and activities during Stockholm Design Week can still be carried out and therefore it still feels relevant to go ahead with the design week in the city. We have a press programme and welcome the international press who are able to travel, but of course we follow the prevailing restrictions,’ adds Hanna.
