Design S – Swedish Design Awards is Sweden’s biggest and most comprehensive design award, backed by Sweden’s entire design industry.

The award is aimed at professional designers, architects, individual specialists, producers and companies that work with design in a broad sense.

Design competitions serve many purposes: they form a concrete starting point for discussions on design and innovation, and also serve as inspiration for the industry and public decision makers to use design for increased growth, competitiveness and well-being. It is a good way to showcase Sweden’s advanced position in the area to the world, and internally it is a well-deserved boost of encouragement for the awarded companies.

Svensk Form have managed design awards for many years. Design S started in 2006, previously under the name Utmärkt Svensk Form between 1983–2002. 

Design S – Swedish Design Awards works in partnership with several industry organisations that together with Svensk Form and jury chair Lisa Lindström select the jury and contribute to the award’s enormous span within several disciplines of design.

Design S and Svensk Form’s other award Ung Svensk Form together form Swedish Design Awards.
