This February, Svensk Form and the world's oldest auction house - Stockholms Auktionsverk - will celebrate Swedish design with an exhibition and auction of works by more than 70 of the country's best and most exciting designers, including Jonas Lindvall.
In 1998, Svensk Form (the Swedish Society of Crafts and Design) launched Ung Svensk Form (Young Swedish Design), a design award for aspiring Swedish design talent. During this year's Stockholm Design Week, Svensk Form and Stockholms Auktionsverk will celebrate Ung Svensk Form with a curated exhibition; "Dåtid, nutid, framtid: vad hände sen?" (Past, present, future: what happened next?) followed by an auction of the pieces on show. Up for sale will be the works of some of the many designers who have participated in Ung Svensk Form since its inception almost 20 years ago, including two lots designed by Jonas Lindvall. The "Papa" chair, designed in 2001 and produced by Skandiform, has become regarded as a contemporary design classic, while "Tureen", a set of three tables produced by Stolab and launched in 2016, is one of the most recent additions to Lindvall's furniture portfolio.
As the winner of Svensk Form's Excellent Swedish Design award for three consecutive years (1998-2000) and a jury member of the premier Ung Svensk Form design award in 1999, Jonas Lindvall has become a respected figure in both Svensk Form and Swedish design's illustrious history.
Ung Svensk Form - Dåtid, nutid, framtid: va hände sen? Will be on show at Stockholms Auktionsverk, Nybrogatan 32, from 7-11 Febuary 2017, followed by the auction, which will take place online on Monday 13th February.
