Sustain Able Voices

5 March 2020 – 31 January 2021

The sustainable solutions of the future will be shaped by openness, courage and a desire to experiment. Sustain Able Voices is an inspiring, engaging exhibition featuring young voices, in a collaboration between IKEA Museum and Svensk Form.


Sustain Able Voices at IKEA Museum.

The exhibition Sustain Able Voices is currently showing to visitors at IKEA Museum in Älmhult. Since 1998, the jury of Young Swedish Design has been awarding distinctions for innovative, boundary-crossing design. The exhibition is based on 25 selected contributions from 2004 to 2020, and interviews with some of the designers behind them. Come and see us, or join us on a digital showing of thought-provoking design that inspires a more sustainable future.

The world doesn’t need more things – it needs the right kind of things! Now more than ever, the world also needs huge amounts of courage, creativity and commitment – commitment which is growing ever stronger among many young people today. And that gives cause for hope!
