Ukurant Perspectives Has Young Designers Contemplate Their Works’ Impact

As we continue to consider our individual roles in the world, the young designers participating in Ukurant’s Perspectives curated exhibition contemplate their works’ impact. Each of the 17 unique pieces reveal its story through the process of exploring materials, experimenting with tactility and style and pushing the limits to redefine what’s important. They’ll challenge your notions of material and shape, innovative composites and known techniques to create a fresh view of sculptural and narrative value.

Founded by young designers for young designers, Ukurant has the ambition to not only get eyes on work but to create a strong community where experiences can be shared across disciplines. Established in 2019 by Kamma Rosa Schytte, Lærke Ryom, Kasper Kyster and Josefine Krabbe Munck, Ukurant yearly invites a new team of emerging creatives to give their take on visual identity, photography and exhibition design. This is Ukurant’s second exhibition where participants had the opportunity to work with graphic designer Beate Bloch, photographer Sofie Flinth and exhibition design duo Frederik Gustav.

This year’s exhibition is happily supported by Muuto, helping to emphasize the importance of being new design perspectives to light and amplify the world of young designers in the public and the established design industry.
