With Covid-19 continuing to impact design events this year, Dezeen Events Guide has put together an up-to-date overview of 25 design weeks in 2022 including events in Stockholm, Milan, New York and London.
The pandemic is now impacting events for the third year in a row, with many shows forced to change their plans. IMM Cologne has been cancelled, the January edition of Maison&Objet has been postponed to March while Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair has been moved to September.
There are rumours that Milan’s prestigious Salone del Mobile might move from its traditional spring slot, with June mooted as an alternative, but for now, the event is scheduled for 5 to 10 April 2022.
Dezeen Events Guide is a constantly updated resource listing hundreds of architecture and design events around the world. Read on for details of some of the most important design events of 2022:
