The dinner, held in the hotel lobby which also hosted an installation by Front, was attended by around 60 designers, architects, journalists, politicians, students and friends from around the world.
Attendees, who were served typical Swedish delicacies in tiny glasses, became part of a performance devised by Front and had to change seats every three minutes in order to meet as many other guests as possible.
Guests included Giulio Cappellini, Teruo Kurosaki, Thomas Sandell, Inga Sempé, Libby Sellers, Stephen Burks, Satyendra Pakhalé and Katrin Olina.
The dinner was hosted by Dezeen editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs.
It was followed by a party attended by around 700 people (see photos of the party on the Nordic Light Hotel's website).
