It is our great pleasure at Svensk Form to present the 25 young designers who have won this year's national design award Ung Svensk Form. Among the 25 participants are also the four designers who have received scholarships from our partners IKEA, Arvet, Lammhults Möbel and Kvadrat. The exhibition will be shown at ArkDes from 4 February to 22 March 2020.
– This year’s edition of Ung Svensk Form offers the audience a thought-provoking and sensational journey into the borderland between utopia and dystopia. It is obvious that the need to comment on both present and future phenomena is strong whether it is furniture design, visual communication or speculative design, says Mats Widbom, CEO of Svensk Form.
– Young designers have an impressive ability to raise important issues with intelligence, curiosity and humor. Ung Svensk Form 2020 offers world-class craftsmanship and a sense of material, says Karin Wiberg, project manager at Ung Svensk Form.

About Ung Svensk Form (Young Swedish Design)
Ung Svensk Form is an annual juried award and a travelling exhibition whose purpose is to broaden and deepen knowledge about young and innovative Swedish design. Ung Svensk Form highlights our desire to create and explore freely, without the need for market adaptation. The project was initiated in 1998 by Svensk Form and Form/Design Center in Malmö. Many of our previous participants are now well established in their respective areas. Ung Svensk Form / Young Swedish Design 2020 is a co-production by Svensk Form (The Swedish Society of Crafts and Design) and ArkDes with support from IKEA, IKEA Museum and The City of Malmö.
