SPOK Punkt (2022)
SPOK Punkt is a concept within the production platform SPOK, functioning as a meeting place aiming to bring local manufacturers and designers together. On display in the exhibition are examples of the material knowledge that is linked to SPOK. Our four furniture groups are developed by SPOK, designed by Pia Högman, Andreas Kojcevski Hansson, through a close collaboration with manufacturers from the first regional hubs to join SPOK. Västra Götaland, Halland, Blekinge and Skåne are represented through furniture in different materials and techniques produced by manufacturers listed at SPOK's digital platform.
The furniture groups are produced by SPOK based on the SPOK methodology (the reverse method) where design follows manufacturing and are produced locally by manufacturers within the SPOK hubs. Together, they represent SPOK's presence in the country and highlight the manufacturing opportunities that exist in the various counties.
SPOK Punkt was first shown at Lokstallarna during Southern Sweden Design Days 2022. During the summer of 2022 the furniture moved in at Form/Design Center.
SPOK is a production platform that aims to gather and spread knowledge about local manufacturing possibilities ranging from handicrafts to industries. SPOK aims to promote the development of local production in Sweden and in the long term also more-local consumption. In 2020, SPOK was launched nationally and the following year the first four hubs joined, Halland, Blekinge, Skåne and Västra Götaland.
SPOK has its starting point from Form/Design Center which is the principal for the project with Anna Gudmundsdottir as project manager. SPOK is founded and developed by Jenny Nordberg, who is also its creative leader. SPOK has been implemented with the support of Region Skåne, Malmö Stad, Länsstyrelsen Skåne, Kulturrådet and Tillväxtverket
