Formex Nova 2018 winner
The award ceremony for Formex Nova 2018 was held at Operaterassen August 21st. The award went to the Icelandic designer Ragna Ragnarsdóttir.
The jury’s motivation: Ragna Ragnarsdóttir´s design is humoristic, personal and headstrong. Her objects have a mystic feeling about them that makes one think of Icelandic sagas and to the unique nature of the country. At the same time they carry traces of Chinese aesthetics.
“I’m extremely honoured and grateful. The nomination was such a surprise, as a designer it’s so easy to get isolated in your studio. It’s a great feeling to get to know that your work is being acknowledged out there in the world. Recognition for a young designer is a huge energy shot, it makes you forget all the hard work and gets you all excited to continue creating,” says Ragna Ragnarsdóttir.
The award was handed out by the Mayor of Stockholm, Karin Wanngård.
