The design of the Swedish Pavilion in Hong Kong

It was a true honour to have been asked by the Swedish Consulate and Svensk Form to design the Swedish Pavilion exhibited during 2017 Design Inspire expo in Hong Kong the supporting expo to BODW, Asia’s premier design conference.  This year the Pavilion was inaugurated by Prince Carl Philip of Sweden, Helena Storm, Consul General of Sweden and Edward Yau Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development of Hong Kong.

This exhibition presents the latest trends in young Swedish design, with its fabulous craftsmanship and new  forms of expression. Ung Svensk Form is a juried award and a traveling exhibition whose purpose is to broaden and deepen knowledge about young and innovative Swedish design. A major focus is the need to create and explore freely without having to respond to market demands. Ung Svensk Form is intended to fulfill an important function as a forum for encounters between designers, manufacturers and the  general public.

Ung Svensk Form is organised by Svensk Form (The Swedish Society of Crafts and Design) in cooperation with ArkDes, IKEA, the City of Malmö and Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair.

Invited Speaker at BODW – Asias premier design event

Super happy to be  invited to speak at Asia’s premier design event. My topic this year will be – 3 simple steps to improve your customers validation. Launching a new product is a risky business and always takes a huge amount of resources. You can limit the risk and get a better customer response with a well developed customer validation process. This is key for companies who want to move up the value chain.

The line-up of speakers this year is super impressive with names such as Tim Brown /IDEO, Julien Ma /Tencents and Winy Maas to name a few.

Keynote in Ningbo

Last week I was honored to represent Hong Kong’s Creative Industry in a keynote speech for the Hong Kong Trade & Development Council – TDC in Ningbo, China. Hong Kong is in my view a unique city that sits in-between east and west.

I meet more creatives from global brands in Hong Kong then any other city I have lived in. We discuss, share ideas and compare notes. This influx of creative minds makes the city creatively richer, more tolerant and competitively stronger in both market insight or production output. Love Hong Kong.

Thanks you TDC for the invitation
