Young Swedish Design 2020

Discover innovative and experimental new designs from Sweden’s young creatives. The exhibition Young Swedish Design displays unique pieces from a range of disciplines: from product design to crafts.

This autumn the Röhsska Museum hosts the annual travelling exhibition Ung Svensk Form. The exhibition shows pieces by 25 young designers who challenge different methods and techniques within a broad design discipline.

– 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 strong sense of materiality, says Karin Wiberg, project manager at Ung Svensk Form.

A platform for young designers
The Röhsska Museum has a long tradition of showing the design and craft of young national and international designers.

– More than ever before, must museums act as platforms for young practitioners within the creative industries in order to share with a wider public the diversity that exists amongst young creatives and not least giving the designers a chance to show their skills and creativity, says Nina Due, museum director at the Röhsska Museum.
