The best design of the North of Europe
Whether Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland or Denmark – The Scandinavians know how to design. Unrepeatable, democratic design is the bridge between handicraft production and industrial production. The connection of organic shaping and everyday functionality is the trademark here and only one of many reasons why Scandinavian design is as wanted as it is.
Scandinavian Design offers a detailed overview from 1900 until today; it presents designers and brands and explains common characteristics and differences of the designs of specific countries. A list of the places that could be interesting for travelling design enthusiasts is also included.
