Scandinavians are world famous for design and November is the perfect time to check out three exhibitions in Sweden showcasing Nordic talent. Here's our top pick alongside our regular arts and entertainment listings.
1. Bipedal Design, Form/Design centre, Malmö
The Form/Design Centre showcases cutting-edge design, art and architecture year-round, profiling a different designer or project each month. For November, the work of unique lamp creators Tvåfota Design is being showcased. Founded by Ida Sjöberg and Stina Löfgren in 2012, the company's lights create unusual shapes on walls and ceilings while seeking to have a minimal environmental impact by being produced locally and using a limited selection of materials. Don't miss the cool cafe here too, where you can sip on a delicious coffee while flicking through a selection of creative magazines.

2. Rustic Retro, Nordiska Museum, Stockholm
Take a trip back to the 1700s and 1800s to see a host of rustic Swedish furniture that still looks stylish today. More than 50 exhibits are included, from grandfather clocks to cabinets, boxes and chests, gathered from across the Nordic nation. Many include beautiful carvings and stunning paintwork. Elsewhere in the museum you can check out galleries featuring textiles, fashion and photography from the 1600s to the present day.
