Sweden’s Konstfack University has taught many of the country’s prominent, scene-defining talents, including Eero Koivisto, Monica Förster and the members of the design studio Front. While its Bachelor program is only conducted in Swedish, its Master’s degrees are offered in English. In both programs, students can specialize, by pursuing craft, design ecologies and individual study; and they take part in the Greenhouse exhibition at the Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair. In recent years, students have displayed such idiosyncratic pieces as a stool made of salt and a fireplace made of CNC-carved wood.
