About Boundless Swedish Design

“Wood, stone, glass and metal. Leather and textile. Simple raw materials that in the mind of a visionary designer take new shapes and in the hands of a skilled producer are transformed into a table, a sofa or a chair. Good design contributes to making the world a little better. It is long-lasting and fulfills a purpose in people’s everyday lives. It is aesthetic and innovative, challenging shapes and boundaries as well as our mindset. From the crude to the refined. From disposable to sustainable. From traditional to cutting edge. From the joinery in Markaryd or Tranås to the hotels in Manhattan or the suburbs of Berlin. From local hero to world citizen. From our generation for generations to come.”

"We want to show how Swedish design makes an impact and pushes the boundaries in more and more ways."

Cecilia Ask Engström, Director Industrial development at TMF

The 6th of September 2022 was the launching day of the digital platform “Boundless Swedish Design”. On this platform we showcase great interior and furniture projects where Swedish Boundless design is requested and appreciated – continuously pushing the boundaries.

Our vision with this platform is to make the Swedish furniture and interior industry even more visible – with core values as sustainability, quality, innovation as well as inclusive design.

The platform is published by The Swedish Federation of Wood and Furniture Industry (TMF), the national trade and employers’ association of the wood processing and furniture industry in Sweden.
