Design S is the Swedish nation design award. The award is presented by Svensk Form and singles out creative and innovative solutions in a range of different design fields. Design S has been presented every second year since 2006. Before that the award was called Utmärkt Svensk Form (Excellent Swedish Design Award).
Everyone wants design today: government agencies, television channels, mining companies, food chains, politicians and environmentalists. Design can change the world. But what is good design? And good change? It’s not as easy to determine. Therefore, there’s Design S! The award is a snapshot of the best of Swedish design, says Jakob Lind, CEO at communications Futurniture and Chairman of the Design S award jury.
From today until September 8 you can send your submissions for Design S. Award ceremony and exhibition will take place at Architecture and Design Centre on November 26.
The jury of Design S consists of twelve people this year, eight names we know from the Swedish design scene (David Carlson founder of David Report is one of them) and four top international names; Li Edelkoort, Alice Rawsthorn, Giulio Cappellini and Ross Lovegrove.
