Ung Svensk Form, the annual jury-judged exhibition for young designers, shows as always some of the best from tomorrow's design scene. Students and recent graduates show a willingness and opportunity to challenge prevailing norms and show alternative solutions and approaches. The sources of inspiration for the exhibitors are limitless: this year there is everything from outfits with astronomical signs, to a chaise longue with shapes like sleeping seals and the history of the Orsadräktens (Orsa-suit) from attire to bucket. Add gardens embellished with earth and sand, a sculptural exploration of colonial connotations and a costume construction with enough silhouettes for a whole new body language. A unique taste of the energy that pervades the young creative scene today.

The winners of this year's Young Swedish Form show high design quality and creative problem solving. They dare to experiment, question and challenge, and they do so with a sense of detail, materials and aesthetics. They are not only young Swedish designers, they are also young Swedish designers with a sustainable vision, says Björn Nordin, CEO of Svensk Form (former head of architecture and design at Svensk Trä).

Starting in 2024, Dunkers kulturhus will step in as the new main producer and present a completely new form of exhibition called "Årsringar" – Year rings, designed by Matti Klenell which focus on sustainability, reuse and change over time.

The contributions in Ung Svensk Form always touch me strongly - with their honest striving, they convey a unique sense of clarity and at the same time optimism. Thanks to our new collaboration, we can design the entire exhibition in the same passionate spirit, says Karin Wiberg, project manager of Ung Svensk Form.

The winners in Ung Svensk Form 2024

Every year, Svensk Form receives hundreds of applications for the award and the touring exhibition. An eminently independent jury carries out the solid work with the exhibition's selection. Together, the winners represent the most thought-provoking and innovative on the young design scene of today.

About Ung Svensk Form

Ung Svensk Form started in 1998 on the initiative of Svensk Form and Form/Design Center. Since then, the jury-judged award and traveling exhibition have become Sweden's most important forum for designers at the beginning of their careers. Today, the exhibition is a meeting place where designers, the industry, the public and the media come together around the important issues of our time and how design can be part of the answer.


On 23–26 May, Southern Sweden Design Days is back for the 4th edition. During four days, the city is filled with exhibitions, seminars, workshops and networking events at more than 70 different locations.

Southern Sweden Design Days invites visitors from all over the world to explore a wide range of design areas focusing on sustainability, development and innovation – from artistically progressive objects to examples of how leftover industrial materials can be given new life. Galleries, shops, showrooms and designers' workspaces are open to visitors. 

Lokstallarna in Kirseberg is the festivals Main location with 6,000 square meters of exhibitions, a live studio, activities for kids, a food court and much more.


The exhibition Ung Svensk Form 2024 is a co-production between Svensk Form and Dunkers kulturhus. The project is carried out in collaboration with IKEA of Sweden, IKEA Museum, City of Malmö, Stockholm Furniture Fair, Swedish Wood and a long list of scholarship donors and exhibition organizers.
