Farewell and Thank You

Design Sweden has ceased to exist as a membership organization for professional practicing designers in Sweden. We would like to thank all members and collaborative partners for being a part of our universe.

For 65 years Design Sweden has worked on behalf of our members, providing advice, steering debate, lobbying for change, and together — through our collective effort — we have shaped better conditions for designers in that time.

Two annual meetings in 2022 came to the conclusion to end the operations of Design Sweden. It was also decided that the remaining funds should become scholarships for design graduates. Scholarships were awarded to Simon Mattisson Granlund, Alice Svensson Brostedt and Anna Bella Gustafsson from Beckmans College of Design in June 2022.

Founded in 1957, Design Sweden has been the organization with the sole purpose to support, nurture and enable designers in Sweden. Read the full history
