Swedish Design Moves was launched at Salone del Mobile earlier this year. At the time, the program’s project manager, Michael Persson Gripkow, said, “Sweden’s design history is deeply connected to its rural heritage and social ideals but there is much more to Swedish design than the cool contemporary minimalism for which it’s best known. At its core, Swedish design is driven by equality, and creativity guides the solutions.”
