Form/Design Center is the leading platform for architecture, design and crafts in southern Sweden. In 2018, Form/Design Center was designated by the government as a national node for a designed living environment.
In a press conference on 9 September 2020, Minister of Culture Amanda Lind and Deputy Minister of Finance Per Bolund announced that Form/Design Center will be awarded SEK 3 million annually from 2021. The temporary government grant to the organization, which has run for more than three years, will now be permanent.
– The fact that the grant will now be permanent gives Form/Design Center even better conditions and greater opportunities to continue its work as a meeting place and node for architecture, design and crafts in southern Sweden, says Minister of Culture Amanda Lind.
We have produced a brochure to provide an overall picture of the organization and how we work long-term to implement the policy for designed living environment.
We have also made a film "Voices about Form/Design Center" which describes what we do within the framework of our assignment. The film is made in collaboration with Region Skåne, the city of Malmö, academia, the industry and various organizations. (In Swedish).
