Swedish Industrial Heritage

Stop for a moment and take a look at your immediate surroundings. If mostly hand crafted products is what you see, you are a unique person. Most of us will see a majority of industrial products, which today are such an integrated part of our everyday life that we hardly reflect upon it. Svensk industrikultur was founded to notice these industrial products, and provide awareness regarding their manufacturing process.

Svensk industrikultur was established in the late 1990’s, with an emphasis on Swedish industry. Publications include monographs, historical reviews, descriptions of technology, general articles etc.

The principal of Svensk industrikultur, Bengt Norling (M.Sc.), has a background in research and consultation and has written numerous works devoted to Swedish industry over the last two decades.

Stockholm’s Industrial Heritage Guide

The purpose with the guide is to show what is left of Stockholm’s industrial heritage and make it accessible to an interested general public. The guide is not intended to be the final version of a map describing the city’s industrial property but is always open to updating.

The guide is based on the recordings that Stockholm´s City museum managed at the end of the 1970’s, but contains also historical sites beyond the selection of the museum as well as industrial heritage found in adjacent communities outside the jurisdiction of Stockholm.
