Fredrik Färg exhibits in Berlin

Design Fredrik Färg

As a new internationally acclaimed designer Fredrik Färg, makes his first own collective show, at the DMY-Allstars exhibition, International Design Festival Berlin 3-7 June 2009. Fredrik graduated from HDK – School of Design and Crafts at the University of Gothenburg in May 2008.

The festival’s theme of the year is “Same same, but different” design that makes a difference. Fredrik Färg will show his exhibition Urban Jungle and with his new prototype Skyscrape, an magazinholder, he will create a architectural forest around a selection of his latest work, including the RE:cover collection, his cupboard, Modus:cover, recently shown at the Salone Satellite in Milan.

The design of the stand is a cooperation between Fredrik Färg and Patrick Allier, a design student at HDK – School of Design and Crafts.
