A student exhibition through Gothenburg University's Academy of Design and Crafts is exploring areas of anxiety. The young creatives covered issues that they felt were "most urgent and deserving of our attention."

Nathalie Dackelid, for example, provided a table whose silhouette pushes boundaries. It speaks to an era where humanity is faced with limited resources. Milena Faé, on the other hand, explores the necessity of longevity with soluble sugar-based products. Other topics explored through the student exhibition are ones that relate to self-perception. For instance, Sofie Wallenius envisions the relationship between individuals and their bodies through a mirror which has been partially concealed, while Johanna Denecke's conjoined chairs "explore the growth of the body into adulthood." While these objects are rooted more in aesthetics than functionality, they are quite interesting to observe and derive inspiration from.
