This December, TypeO is collaborating with vintage furniture dealer Temporärt and online art retailer The Ode To, in creating LUX, an atypical yule market, in Stockholm. On December 1st we open the doors to the atypical yule market LUX on Kronobergsgatan 9 in Stockholm.
The space is a contemporary reinterpretation of the traditional Swedish Christmas market, a tradition with a medieval heritage.
The Christmas stall, hatch and all, has received a new, deconstructed look and the ancient custom of hanging the Christmas tree upside-down has been reintroduced. Visitors are met by a luminous environment that has also served as inspiration to the name LUX. The temporary retail space aims to offer a serene shopping experience in the midst of holiday stress.
The items for sale are specially selected to aid Christmas shoppers in their quest for unique gifts. The selection, which includes vintage furniture pieces, artworks and interior items, inspires more mindful consumption as all items are designed to last, both in quality and style. The market also offers visitors a chance to get aquatinted with the trio’s product ranges, normally only available online.
LUX is open December 1st through 22nd, between 11.00–19.00 on Wednesday through Friday, and between 11.00–16.00 on Saturday through Sunday.
Following Christmas market tradition, shoppers are served select Swedish flavors – a Christmas blend from micro roaster Stockholm Roast and apple mulled wine from Sövde Musteri.
