Ung Svensk Form is an annual jury-rated award that increases the knowledge and widening the scope of new, innovative Swedish design; helping it reach new audiences. The exhibition is organised by Form (the Swedish Society of Crafts and Design) and tours both in Sweden and abroad. Ung Svensk Form is an arena for young Swedish design – one that showcases the need to make space for creativity in working with design. To believe in an idea and to implement it. To dare to play, to try things out, and to explore freely, without having to adapt to market demands.

Ung Svensk Form is organised by Svensk Form (The Swedish Society of Crafts and Design) in cooperation with IKEA, the City of Malmö and ArkDes. The project was initiated by Svensk Form and Form/Design Center in 1998 and celebrates this year's 20th anniversary!

This year’s edition of Ung Svensk Form clearly shows how today the borders between art, crafts and design are more and more open,” says Mats Widbom, Managing Director of Svensk Form.
