DESIGN_ Swedish Design shines brightly during London Design Festival 2013. Two exhibitions featuring young designers both showing high quality craftsmanship and innovation in design. Svensk Form is behind the annual initiative in collaboration with the Swedish Institute and the Swedish Embassy in London.
Svensk Form (the Swedish Society of Crafts and Design) is a not-for-profit membership association mandated by the Swedish government to promote Swedish design at home and abroad. Svensk Form’s goal is to demonstrate the benefits of good design to social development, to stimulate the development of design in Sweden, to increase respect for the value of design work and to expand and deepen attitudes towards issues of form and design.
