Beckmans College of Design participating in Milan Design Week 2019
April 9, 2019
16 students and alumni take part in the “HEMMA gone wild” exhibition at the 2019 Milan Design Week.
Arranged by the Swedish Design Moves project and curated by Joyn Studio, HEMMA showcases the most interesting of Swedish interior design with a focus on sustainability, nature and innovation. The exhibition invites visitors to experience an abstract and playful vision of home through an unfolding scenography, drawn by curiosity and a mood of mystery.
