About the Exhibition Swedish Contemporary
Design Swedish contemporary design has firmly established its distinctive
identity in today's global context and gain international recognition
and market demand. With a firm emphasis on function, form and material,
Swedish designed products are highly adapted to the climatic conditions
of Sweden where the environment plays an important role in their conceptualisation
and making. Partnerships between designers and the industry has resulted
in well thought through products that help create unique identities
for companies, strengthening their image and helping them gain a competitive
advantage. This exhibition features works by 13 designers, of which
two - Monica Förster and Nina Jobs - are also curators of the show.
The exhibition, swedenmade design 4stories, features prize-winning products
from some of the best Swedish designers and producers. The design of
these exhibits are innovative ideas where form, function and material
are adapted to and based on Swedens changing seasons and its changing
climatic conditions. The thematic display of the objects corresponds
to the four seasons where the exhibits are grouped into four inflatable
cloud-shaped rooms designed by Ms Förster.
