Exponex to Design Nordic Pavilion at World Expo 2025 in Japan


Exponex has secured a contract to design and implement the exhibition for the Nordic Pavilion at the 2025 World Expo in Osaka, Japan. Exponex will lead the project with Wintenex, Habegger, Kvorning Design, Rintala Eggertsson Architects, and the Icelandic design firm Gagarín.

The joint pavilion of Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Iceland aims to showcase Nordic unity. It will provide insight into Nordic life, values, and the close relationship these countries share with nature. The exhibition will highlight the ideals of Nordic societies, where trust, tolerance, and cooperation are fundamental. Global technological solutions will be integrated into the guest experience.

"We believe that the Nordic pavilion at Expo 2025 Osaka will not only strengthen the Nordic countries' position in the Japanese market but also attract Japanese visitors and positively impact the business of partners in Nordic export industries," said Dag Olav Koppervik, project manager of the Nordic pavilion.

The design team includes Kvorning Design, Rintala Eggertsson Architects, and Gagarín, among the most experienced exhibition designers in the Nordics. Over the past decade, they have designed numerous exhibitions and museums. The pavilion is produced under the leadership of Exponex from the Czech Republic and Wintenex and Habegger from Switzerland, who have extensive experience setting up international exhibition spaces, especially world expos.
