SCANDINAVIA DESIGN

Scandinavian design has its origins in the special relationship between the Nordic countries - Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland - with the environment. Nature is, in fact, the main source of inspiration for artists and Scandinavian designers and results in a ubiquitous furniture and wooden objects, with clean lines.
Scandinavian design, as we know it today, comes from the will of the designers of the 1920s and 1930s - Kaare Klint, Mogens Koch and Alvar Aalto - to create aesthetic, functional and accessible to all furniture, building focus on the specific needs of the human body.

The spirit of Scandinavian design can be defined in the creation of beautiful objects whose purpose is to simplify and improve everyday life in the home.
It was also during the 20s and 30s Kay Bojesen specialist figurines and wooden animals and Georg Jensen, the Danish master silversmith, created their finest works.
If the furniture and knew immediately a huge success in their respective countries, it was only after the Second World War that the phenomenon of Scandinavian design really gained momentum internationally. The golden age of Nordic design was without question the 50s and 60s many exhibitions worldwide propelled innovative creations of the most talented Scandinavian designers, including Arne Jacobsen, Borge Mogensen, Verner Panton and Hans Wegner, internationally. This is the case of the famous Panton chair by Verner Panton in the early 50s, the first chair made entirely of molded plastic, or later the Egg Chair by Arne Jacobsen chair with its wrap-avant-garde and vibrant colors.

The success of Scandinavian creations internationally also strongly influenced the modernist movement in Europe and North America.
Since 1990, groups of young designers gave a new face to Scandinavian design bringing modernist ideas and experimenting with new forms and materials.
Scandinavian design has established itself as a timeless trend. Some furniture, lighting and cult objects of Scandinavian designers of yesteryear have become true icons and continue to be produced and used worldwide. Everyone today knows the famous Egg chair by Arne Jacobsen, CH24 Wishbone chair by Hans Wegner and Poul Henningsen PH lamps. The Nordic countries and perpetuate their unique know-how in the world for manufacturing quality furniture: woodworking, high cabinet, manufacturing and garment fabrics, weaving tradition (Sweden) ... With the strength of the many artisans teach their know-how from generation to generation.
