Beckmans staff, fashion

At the NK Gala, Martin Bergström, fashion designer and known for his unique prints, became the first to receive the newly established Craft Award. At Beckmans he is a senior lecturer at the Fashion Program and teaches primarily pattern design.

Jury's motivation

"This year's Craft Award goes to one of Sweden's most renowned designers, active in everything from interior design and accessories to clothing and art. Inspiration is often drawn from nature, which has made the organic and almost mystical idiom his hallmark. The close relationship with the plant kingdom is also evident in his strong commitment to sustainable design. What he creates is meant to live long and be passed down from generation to generation. His design has attracted worldwide attention. In addition to several assignments for NK, he has worked with everything from Scandinavian companies to Indian producers and French fashion houses, and has a showroom in Los Angeles"
