Epilogue – Beckmans Design Collaboration 2020 at Stockholm Furniture Fair
Beckmans College of Design presents six design collaborations at Stockholm Furniture Fair February 4-8.
The design collaboration
This year’s project is a meeting between the final-year students in Product Design and the six Swedish furniture producers Abstracta, Johanson Design, Kinnarps, Källemo, Mitab, and Storängen. The result is on display in the Greenhouse Hall together with the project’s visual concept designed by a group of students in Visual Communication, Epilogue – A Love Story.
"Unique to Beckmans College of Design is our collaborations with professional clients but also the collaborations between the study programs. In this project, the Product Design students have taken on an external assignment at a high creative and professional level, and in the process gained valuable experiences and contacts for the future", says Margot Barolo, Programme Director Product Design.
