The Axel Larsson Memorial Fund Scholarship 2021


Furniture designer and interior architect Sara Szyber received a grant of SEK 20,000 from the Axel Larsson Memorial Fund on the Swedish Design Association’s birthday on 6 October 2021. The scholarship was awarded by the Swedish Design Scholarship Committee via CEO Mats Widbom, during a ceremony at the Swedish Design Library on Skeppsholmen in Stockholm.
The Committee’s motivation: “The Axel Larsson Memorial Fund Scholarship is awarded in 2021 to furniture designer and interior architect Sara Szyber for a furniture design that is firmly rooted in the Swedish furniture tradition and at the same time takes a new direction through its own design language and new production techniques, as in the Check Mate armchair. An armchair with a strong presence through a decorative checkerboard pattern, coated directly on the armchair’s visible birch plywood frame, creating an interaction between the two-dimensional grid and the armchair’s three-dimensional spatiality. This is tradition and innovation at its best.”
