Now in its fourth year, the Örnsberg Auction takes yet another step in its development from experimental platform to legitimate counterestablishment movement. While the auction has always been practicedriven – meaning that designers are chosen, rather than individual works – this year the criteria for inclusion has been honed even further. Participants not only fall within the rather broad category of self producing designers working with small-scale production, but many to an even narrower and more radical subset of contemporary design. This year’s line-up favours designers with unique practices, whose methods of production are self-invented or who are working collectively.
