INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE, FURNITURE and EXHIBITION DESIGN
The work of Sara Szyber spans over a wide range related to the interior – from furniture and industrial design to the shaping of exhibition and interior architectural projects. In each assignment she takes a starting point in the potency of the material, to impinge on the senses and add new aspects to the subject area. She has been involved in such a diverse range of work as designing ”Play!” – an exhibition for children, that toured across Europe (Moscow, Berlin, Belgrade), through being the creator of a wide range of original, typically Scandinavian style furniture design together with renowned companies such as Design House Stockholm, Nola, NC and Klong. Sara Szyber’s interest in materials and patterns has been expressed in her carpet designs for Kateha, as well as a collection of clover patterned products in brass for Svenskt Tenn. Together with The Swedish Society of Crafts and Design (Svensk Form), Sara Szyber participated as a designer and managed the tour for the “17 Swedish Designers”-exhibition-show through USA, Austria and Czech Republic, with works exclusively by Swedish female designers. She has also been commissioned to create the interiors of The Gotland Visitor’s Centre (Gotlands Naturum), The National Museum of Science and Technology and was recently selected to create the space for visitors and school-classes at The Swedish History Museum in Stockholm. Sara Szyber has been granted with several awards, in 2018 she received a 2-year working grant from The Swedish Arts Grants Committee for the third time during her profession. Since 2014 a board member of The Swedish Society of Crafts and Design (Svensk Form).
