16 students and alumni take part in the “HEMMA gone wild” exhibition at the 2019 Milan Design Week.
Stockholm has long been an incubator of design and also an influencer in creative thinking and innovation. Now 16 graduates and alumni from Beckmans College of Design Stockholm, one of Sweden's leading design colleges, make their appearance on the international design scene in the exhibition "HEMMA gone wild". The exhibition, arranged by the Swedish Design Moves project and curated by Joyn Studio, showcases the most interesting of Swedish interior design with a focus on sustainability, nature and innovation. The exhibition invites visitors to experience an abstract and playful vision of home through an unfolding scenography, drawn by curiosity and a mood of mystery.
