Ung Svensk Form is a juried award and a travelling exhibition whose purpose is to broaden and deepen knowledge about young and innovative Swedish design. A major focus is the need to create and explore freely without having to respond to market demands. Ung Svensk Form is intended to fulfil an important function as a forum for encounters between designers, manufacturers and the general public. In 2017 it’s the 12th edition of Ung Svensk Form. The project started at Form/Design Center in Malmö in 1998.
