Ung Svensk Form is an arena for young design. The project was created with the aim of increasing the knowledge and widening the scope of new, innovative Swedish design; helping it reach new audiences.
The exhibition offers designers a possibility to meet the audience and manufacturers, a chance to initiate dialogue and establish new contacts.
The project was initiated by Svensk Form and Form/Design Center in 1998.
Ung Svensk Form is organised by Svensk Form (The Swedish Society of Crafts and Design) in cooperation with IKEA, the City of Malmö and Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair.
The previous exhibitions created quite a stir both in Sweden and internationally, many of the past exhibitors are well established within their fields today.
The exhibition is open to young designers working in Sweden and Swedish designers residing and working outside of Sweden.
Designers born in 1979 or later can apply. Older applicants may also apply if they are studying at the time of application.
Participants in the exhibition get a diploma and their contributions will be presented together with the jury’s verdict in the exhibition catalogue.
The nominees will be presented at the exhibition that opens at the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair in February each year and tours during one and a half years in Sweden and internationally.
Contributions will be shown on the exhibition which will tour in Sweden and abroad for a year and a half. The jury has the possibility to award scholarships to exceptional applicants.
