Scandinavia Dreaming

Scandinavia Dreaming by Gestalten presents dazzling interiors, architecture and products that show the richness, variety and intensity of contemporary Nordic spaces, with profiles of brands and personalities that have influenced and brought Nordic design to the forefront. Design firms as Hay, Ferm Living and Frama are highlighted as examples of the new layer in contemporary Danish design. Together with examples from the distinct high class Gubi design house to the Oslo based designers Kneip and their tantalizing sculptures it all sums up to a seamless pairing of the aesthetic and the historical within this iconic tale of design. The projects presented in the book are told through anecdotes from those who live in them and tells of a design school that has a worldwide reputation for its effortless combination of classical restraint and warm materials.
