Architecture and design events in February 2020 from Dezeen Events Guide

Modernism Week in Palm Springs, Stockholm Design Week and the Collect crafts fair and Surface Design Show in London are among the architecture and design events taking place this month and listed on Dezeen Events Guide.

Other events taking place in February include Madrid Design Festival, Nomad St Moritz and Object Rotterdam.

Stockholm Design Week

Stockholm Design Week is Dezeen's first major excursion of the year, as we have several events taking place in the city. Check the Stockholm section of Dezeen Events Guide for details!

The week takes place from 3-9 February in the Swedish capital, with more than 200 events across the city, including the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair, which is the biggest design fair in Scandinavia.

The Guest of Honour at this year's fair is Indian-British design duo Doshi Levien, who will present an exhibition explaining their working process in the entrance hall of Stockholmsmässan, where the fair takes place.

The fair's talks programme will include a lecture by Doshi Levien's Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien moderated by Dezeen founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs. It takes place at 2pm in The Design Bar at the fair.

Modernism Week

Modernism Week takes place in Palm Springs, California this month. The 15th year of the festival will include walking, biking and bus tours of many of the mid-century houses in the area, as well as films and lectures.

Talks include an exploration of the female architects involved in designing Palm Springs, and TWA Hotel: Rebirth of a Modern Icon about the restoration of Eero Saarinen's 1962 TWA Flight Center at JFK airport.

Collect craft fair

The Collect: International Art Fair for Modern Craft and Design functions more like an art fair, with galleries taking stands to show exhibitions by specific designers and makers.

Collect moves to London's Somerset House this year, with over a quarter of participating galleries showing for the first time. Four South Korean galleries will show new work.
