"Northern Lights: Scandinavian Design" at the Philadelphia Museum, Philadelphia.
Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway…Their contribution to the triumph of universally exhibited Scandinavian design that we see today is exceptional.
The exhibition focuses on middle of the 19th century, when interest in this particularly kind of design peaked in the United States and when designers such as Hans Wegner and Marimekko first designed now legendary ensembles. Across almost one hundred objects from furniture and ceramics to textiles and even locks, the exhibition explores the philosophy below and the aesthetic characteristics of Scandinavian design. Until 27th September. B.D www.philamuseum.org
