Ambitious project by the Design Sweden team. We want to map out all the designers working in/with Sweden. Be part of our BETA test – put yourself on the map!
We're creating a map of Design Sweden, and we are asking you – our members and supporters – to assist us in making it.
This ambitious project serves to create an interactive map – the definite creative index of designers working in/with Sweden.
We're still in beta and open to new ideas, please contact email@example.com with questions and suggestions.

Don’t think of Design Sweden as an organisation. Think of us as a confidant. A silent ambassador that works on your behalf, providing advice, steering debate, lobbying for change. Helping shape better conditions for working as a designer.
For over half a century Design Sweden has been an axis for Swedish designers. However a whole lot has changed since Rune Monö, Carl-Axel Acking and Sigvard Bernadotte chaired the organisation in the 50’s and 60’s. The world has evolved in disruptive ways and design as discipline has developed to reflect advances in new technology and organisational practises. We have gone from confining design to the industrial space to considering it as an all-encompassing process and culture, with an ever-growing amount of job variations. Today, design is present in all companies and organisations and is an unquestioned cornerstone for all start-ups and new initiatives. From its unique vantage point – exploring and analysing emerging behavioural patterns and cultural shifts – design plays a vital part in shaping our surroundings.
