Swedish Design in Hamburg

Museum für Völkerkunde Hamburg

27 April 2014



Currently on show in the Hamburg Museum of Ethnology, amongst many other projects and products, are a wheelchair weighing only 4.4 kg, a printer for the blind, a lamp that produces electricity via a counterweight and a pedal-operated peeling machine for yucca roots. They are all prizewinners in the renowned Swedish competitions Ung Svensk Form and Design S.



This is the first time that a double exhibition is taking place. It is showcasing a total of 60 projects from Sweden that demonstrate sustainable, environmentally aware, strategic or innovative design. The national design prize, Design S, which has been awarded every two years since 2006, is aimed at both designers and entrepreneurs. The Swedish competition Ung Svensk Form, launched in 1998 and held every two years since then, is considered to be a platform for young designers, manufacturers and their potential customers.
