Time&Room, Dalaformat and PLEASE DISTURB

Design is more than form, function, identity and brand. Design creates ideals and values – and is a tool for shaping what is not yet created. With three exhibitions, we wanted to highlight the idea of the journey.

Time & Room gave a recap of the leap from industrialismens breakthrough for our own unpredictable future.
Dalaformat to the perspective of the phenomenon in the design and from Dalarna.
Please disturb! Challenged the perception of today’s art and design.

The exhibition was organized by the Avesta Municipality and the County Administration Dalarna. Below you can read an excerpt in which Ingrid Dahlberg, Governor of Dalarna is 2002-2006 speaks about design in 2005


“The year 2005 brought together the whole of Sweden on the theme of design. Here in Dalarna was

DIFFERENCE spearhead design. Design is of great importance for how we solve problems and create new opportunities – design makes a difference. This whole exhibition was a golden opportunity to – with inspiration from Dalarnas rich traditions in culture creativity, environment, folklore and industrial development – make clear what the design means today to raise quality and create DIFFERENCE for products and services from Dalarna in both national and international arenas. ”
