Highlights of Arctic Design Week

Arctic Design Week is an entire week of seeing and experiencing for the townspeople, visitors, designers and entrepreneurs.

Responsibility of Arctic Design

We are concerned about the Arctic region. Globally.

We want to help the Arctic region to succeed, and this is why we strive to promote sustainable development and ethically produced Arctic design.

The endangered Arctic Snowy Owl belongs to the sensitive ecosystem of the Arctic. This beautiful migratory owl is the symbol for the Arctic Design week, the world’s northernmost design event. It conveys the message of wise and responsible Arctic design that appreciates practicality.
