Design Talk with Agneta Stake
On Tuesday, Nola’s Founder and Head of Design, Agneta Stake, participated in a panel discussion with the theme “History and Future”. The discussion centered around the importance to lay the groundwork for the future ahead, by strengthening the younger generation’s understanding of design history. The panel also debated on how we can find new paths towards a more collaborative, considerate, exchange of knowledge between the academy and the industry.
Other participants included Lars Bülow, designer, architect MSA, founder of Möbeldesignmuseum, Thorsten Hild, professor in furniture design and Mika Lindblad, designer. Anne Marchal was the moderator.
The panel discussion was part of the event Inside Swedish Design, arranged by Interior Cluster Sweden, during Stockholm Design Week.
