Southern Sweden Design Days 2021
27–30 May 2021, the very first edition of Southern Sweden Design Days took place – a new international design festival in Malmö.
Southern Sweden Design Days 2021 was the start of a new annual event that highlights and builds knowledge about design – focusing on sustainability, collaboration, development and innovation. For four days, a platform was created showcasing a full range of design disciplines through seminars, workshops, exhibitions and networking events. Southern Sweden Design Days was organized on the initiative of Form/Design Center – the main venue for architecture, design and crafts in southern Sweden.
The theme for Southern Sweden Design Days 2021 was “1 + 1 = 3”. The theme encouraged collaborations and cross-fertilisation with the aim of highlighting the region’s openness and locality. The theme could be seen as a symbol of synergy and sustainability – to solve existing and future challenges there is a need to collaborate, innovate and bring new equations to the table. The theme was open to interpretation and could be a meeting between materials or techniques that form a new whole, different expressions and styles combined in an innovative manner or it could encourage different industries or disciplines to merge.
Seminars, workshops, panel discussions, interviews and much more – all digital content from 2021’s event is available on demand. You can also watch the full SSDD Studio broadcasts or pick your favorites from the tableau.
