42. Carpet series "Spår" T, KF: D, O, H
Designer Ola Rune. Manufactured by: Hitex AB
Jury´s comment: A series of hand-tufted, single-color wool carpets in which the pattern is formed by cut-off areas in the thick pile. The forms are the circle, square, rectangle, and line. It could hardly be more austere!

43. Carpet series "Rut" and "Rand" T: F, H
Designer: Eva Arnesdotter-Schwyzer
Manufactured by: Eva Arnesdotter-Schwyzer. Jury´s comment: Tough woven rib carpets of flax/jute with a lot of tradition behind them. Here the material comes into its own in both function and expression. The gloss of the flax stands out where the warp is dense. An exciting combination of flax warp and the weft of the heavy jute yarn.

44. Guest towel "Linjal" T: H
Designer: Urban Johanssson
Manufactured by: Klässbols Linneväveri AB
Jury´s comment: A simple, timeless but never theless elegant hand towel of the highest quality. The eco-labelled flax comes from Holma in the province of Hälsingland and Andrews in Ireland.

45. Glass vase "Dot" KF: D, H
Designer: Anne Nilsson
Producer: Orrefors Kosta Boda AB. Manufactured by: Orrefors
Jury´s comment: A sensual vase in which the matt-ground milky white glass expresses weightlessness. A beautiful object which at the same time rests securely on the simplicity of its basic form.

46. Vase "Droppe" KF: F, H
Designer: Lena Bergström
Producer: Orrefors Kosta Boda AB. Manufactured by: Orrefors
Jury´s comment: Lovely proportions in collaboration with color and shape makes us think of nature.

47. Glass Plates "Stripe" KF: D, H
Designer: Anne Nilsson. Producer: Orrefors Kosta Boda AB
Manufactured by: Orrefors
Jury´s comment: A series of inviting, generous plates which, with their powerful decor, give the glass a sense of hovering and stylishly emphasize their contents.

48. Carafe KF: H
Designer: Ingegerd Råman
Manufactured by: Skrufs Glasbuk AB
Jury´s comments: A carafe for oil, which radiates simplicity and cool elegance. The distinct character of the spherical, sand-blasted matt stopper emphasizes the delicate, scarely tangible material of the carafe, for which the contents must provide the form.

49. Glass service "Marrakech". KF: H
Designer: Gunnel Sahlin. Producer: Orrefors Kosta Boda AB
Manufactured by: Kosta Boda
Jury´s comment: Classic and artless forms in combination with a surprising and spontaneous decor in black, white and fresh colors.
