Helsingborg exhibition of 1955, also known as H55, was a BIE recognised world's fair held in Helsingborg, Sweden[1] held between 10 June and 28 August 1955. [2]

A total of nine nations were represented at the exhibition: Denmark, Finland, France, Japan, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and West Germany.

Its theme was arts and crafts, with an aim of showing how modern design could be used in commercial as well as luxury goods.[2] Exhibitors came from 10 countries[3] with items including Nisse Strinning's String design bookshelf[4]

Still standing in Helsingborg from the exhibition are the Concert Hall, Parapet Restaurant, and Bar 55.
