The Axel Larsson Memorial Fund
On 6 October 2021 Sara Szyber was honored The Axel Larsson Memorial Fund Scholarship.
The 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.” Many thanks indeed!
