As result of winning the competition back in May, Junjie Liu’s prize was a field trip to Sweden to learn more about the Swedish design tradition. Between August 11 and 18, Liu is in Stockholm and Småland to experience this.
The task of the Swedish competition was to create a product that is innovative, sustainable, and useful in the everyday life.
More than 100 Chinese design students submitted to the competition, and the winner was found on May 1. Junjie Liu ended up as the winner, and she was handed the prize by Swedish Minister for Trade, Ewa Björling.
Liu created a pair of metal knife and fork with integrated wooden chopsticks. The work is called “Tino”.
