The best of design from Europe's neighbors to the north
Scandinavians are exceptionally gifted in design. They are
world-famous for their inimitable, democratic designs which bridge
the gap between crafts and industrial production. The marriage of
beautiful, organic forms with everyday functionality is one of the
primary strengths of Scandinavian design and one of the reasons why
Scandinavian creations are so cherished and sought after.
This all-you-need guide includes a detailed look at Scandinavian
furniture, glass, ceramics, textiles, jewelry, metalware and
industrial design from 1900 to the present day, with in-depth
entries on over 200 designers and design-led companies, plus essays
on the similarities and differences in approach between Norway,
Sweden, Finland, Iceland, and Denmark. Also included is a list of
important design-related places to visit for readers planning to
travel to Scandinavia.
