Ung Svensk Form 2020
Young Swedish Design 2020
3 februari – 22 mars
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. Ung Svensk Form serves a vital function as a forum for encounters between designers, manufacturers and the general public, and applications are not divided into categories. The reason for this is that we want to stimulate cross-border projects. Scholarships are awarded to designers who have particularly distinguished themselves. The exhibition will tour both in Sweden and internationally. 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), ArkDes, IKEA, IKEA Museum and The City of Malmö.

JULIA OLANDERS – BETWEENNESS
Betweenness are vessels made out of plaster and insulation foam. These hidden building materials are cast in sewn fabric moulds, which are then removed. By working with dualities, the onlooker is challenged to think about what surrounds us: the norms connected to our bodies, to materials, to spaces and genders.
Objects that challenge truths about beautiful and ugly, prototype and product, traditional and innovative. Betweenness is neither or both, original forms that can be interpreted as our age’s version of ancient marble statues – made to wither in just a few months.
