Young Swedish Design 2022 has a power and energy that inspires and strives to bring about change. With great craftsmanship, creativity and a sense for materials, on show here is the latest and most innovative in young Swedish design. Filtered down from hundreds of applications from across Sweden, Young Swedish Design 2022 presents a selection of 25 entries.

Young Swedish Design is an annual award judged by a jury, and also a touring exhibition, established in
1998 to increase and broaden knowledge about young, innovative Swedish design. Young Swedish Design
serves an important purpose as a forum for designers, industry, the public and media, highlighting key questions and messages while allowing free exploration and the crossing of boundaries.

The project’s partners award several scholarships, and the exhibition goes on tour around Sweden. Many previous winners are now well established in their particular fields.

Young Swedish Design 2022 invites visitors to meet the design stars of the future. Welcome!
