Formex Nova will be part of the Swedish presence at Salone del Mobile/Fuorisalone in Milan on April 17-22, 2018. Qian Jiang, the winner of Formex Nova 2017, will participate in an exhibition arranged by Swedish Design Moves, a program sponsored by the government to strengthen Sweden as a design country.

The Formex Nova 2017 winner - Qian Jiang - will participate in the exhibition entitled HEMMA - stories of home, which offers glimpses of a home with a twist. The concept was created by Joyn Studio, the work of which includes the interior of Frantzén in Stockholm, a restaurant that recently received three Michelin stars.

“We believe it’s important to bring some attention to Formex Nova outside of the Nordic countries since, today, a talented designer such as Qian Jiang could have the entire world as a workplace,” says Lotta Ahlvar, Operational Event Manager at Formex.

The exhibition is managed by Visit Sweden, and among the participants there are among others:

Articles/ Asplund / Astrid / Beckmans College of Design / Blå Station/ Bolon / Cake / Carpe Diem Beds / Dahl Agenturer / David Design / Design House Stockholm / Falu Rödfärg / Friends of Handicraft / Färg&Blanche / Gemla / HDK Academy of Design and Crafts with support from Region Västra Götaland/ Hikki / Hope / John Sterner / Korbo / Källemo / Lammhults/ Ludvig Svensson / Marrakech Design / No Early Birds / Nola / Pholc / RIAN Designmuseum with support from Region Halland / Rörstrand / Studio Dejawu with support from Formex Nova / Studio Mutant / Tre Sekel / Urbanears / Zero
