UNG8 – Stockholm Furniture Fair

leave a comment »

UNG is a recurrent, juried, travelling exhibition open to young designers.

Purpose — UNG is an arena for young Swedish design. UNG aims to increase the knowledge and widen the scope of new, innovative Swedish design, helping it reach new audiences. The exhibition offers designers a possibility to meet the audience and manufacturers. And a chance to initiate dialogue and establish new contacts.

Some pieces from my Rebirth series were selected by the jury and will now travel with the UNG-exhibition for the next 2 years to places like, Göteborg, Malmö, Athens and Cyprus. The starting point for the exhibition was at the Furniture fair in Stockholm, February 2011. Here is what the jury said about my work…

’Kalvskinnsrosetter som viskar hemligheter från förr i våra öron. En dissekerad noshornsbagge på kragen. Man skulle kunna tro att detta borde viftas bort i en snabb handvändning. Det vore dumt. Särskilt som vi tror att detta kommer stå alla väldigt dyrt i framtiden.’
