Rising stars

Several alumni from HDK was awarded during Stockholm Furniture Fair. 

Emma von Brömssen was elected Rising Star of the Year at ELLE Decoration Swedish Design Awards 2016
The jury's motivation: Dazzling skills in combination with a strong feeling for all the inspiration that nature provides is the basis for the pattern treasure created by this year's Rising Star. She is an artist who has managed to transmit her unique expresseion to wallpaper and textiles. 

Studio BEY, consisting of HDK alumni Sigrid Hägg and Cecilia Xinyu Zhang was elected Rising Star in the newly instituted award Editor's Choice
They jury's motivation: BEY has presented a consistant selection of products - from lamps and stools to mirrors - who all plays with the same subject - to annoy your field of view and make you look twice. The mystique that the two young women's eclectic work includes can find it's foundation in that east meets west, which in this case means a young woman from Peking teams up with a young woman from the west of Sweden, and opens a design studio in Bergen, Norway.  

This year's Editor's Choice jury was the three editor in chiefs Marcus Fairs, Dezeen; Adeline Seidel, Stylepark and Walter Bettens, DAMn magazine.
