Ung Svensk Form 2022

The application period has ended. The exhibition will open on February 7th.

This year’s competition features more scholarships than ever before in the award’s 23-year history!

In times like these, we’ve seen creative juices flowing from every direction. Schools, industries, the entire cultural world – most everyone have had to adapt and make changes in order to keep going since the pandemic hit last year. Have you as a designer or creative had to adapt? If so, it is your creativity that Ung Svensk Form 2022 would like to show the world!

The award offers a fantastic opportunity to reach out with your work to the industry, the media and the public. As an applicant, you will also have the chance to apply for more scholarships than ever before, from our partners including IKEA, Arvet,  Kvadrat, Lammhults Möbel, Massive Entertainment and the Stiftelsen för Garverinäringens Främjande. And this year’s big announcement – a study and inspirational trip sponsored by industry organisation Swedish Wood.

All areas within design are welcome to apply: examples are graphic design, product design, architecture, furniture, crafts, glass, ceramics, textiles, fashion, game design and industrial design.

Ung Svensk Form is an annual juried competition and travelling exhibition aimed at raising and increasing awareness of young and innovative Swedish design. The exhibition opens at Stockholm House of Culture & City Theatre during Stockholm Design Week 2022 after which it embarks on a tour through Sweden.

For whom?
Ung Svensk Form is aimed at young designers and creatives based in Sweden, as well as Swedish citizens based abroad. Individuals born in 1985 or later are welcome to apply. Older applicants can apply if they are students at the time of application.

The Ung Svensk Form 2022 Exhibition is a co-production between Svensk Form and IKEA Museum.

The project is done in partnership with the Stockholm House of Culture & City Theatre, the City of Malmö and a long list of exhibition organisers and scholarship donors.
