Institut suédois reveals designer revamp

The Hôtel de Marle (16th-18th centuries) is one of those venerable old buildings that give the Marais its irresistible charm.

The Institut suédois, which has occupied the premises since the 1960s, closed earlier this year for a six-month refurbishment by Gabriella Gustafsson and Mattias Ståhlbom from Stockholm design studio TAF Arkitektkontor. The Café suédois was back in business in September, while the stunning cultural center officially reopens on October 21, with a new layout for its permanent collection. The relaunch also marks the start of the Swedish Design Moves Paris season and the “Next Level Craft” – an exhibition (until January 7) featuring works by some 30 craft (blown glass, wickerwork, birchbark weaving), furniture and fashion designers.

Institut suédois. 11, rue Payenne, 3rd.
From 2pm to 8pm.
