During his long career, Ruud has participated at several exhibitions like International Design Center in New York, Swedish Embassy in Tokyo and Form/Design Center in Malmoe, Sweden.


Ruud has also received the awards Forsnäspriset, the "Golden Chair" award and the "Excellent Swedish Design" award which he has been awarded 14 times. Eight of these products were designed in cooperation with Skandiform.


"I have worked with Skandiform since 1990. It is an exciting, interesting and inspiring cooperation, consisting of both design and development of a fundamental idea. A basic product enabling combination and variation."
