Petra Lilja
Design Studio


Petra Lilja Design Gallery is the first gallery dedicated to contemporary design in the south of Sweden. Located in the home of curator Petra Lilja between 2013-2017, the idea was to challenge the norms of the white cube, where and how art and design is disseminated. The choice of artists and designers was always grounded in the interesting stories behind the person/s and produced in a collaborative way. The year-long program Research in the Gallery - materially, verbally and in action juxtaposed design research with the exposure of the gallery and the domesticity of the location.
