Svensk Form has organised design awards for many years as a vital part of its activities. It gives a good indication of what is happening here and now within Swedish design in its broadest sense. At the top of the agenda are today’s global social, economic and environmental challenges, which is also evident within the award entries. This year, Svensk Form celebrates 170 years as the oldest design promotion society in the world. During its long history, Svensk Form has always been at the forefront of new initiatives and groundbreaking exhibitions, addressing the most acute issues of each time.
