Excerpt from Publication.

‘20th century Scandinavian design developed with a focus on high quality craftsmanship and the well-being of the user. Combining regional craft traditions with a sophisticated understanding of modern thought and feeling, the leading figures of Nordic Modernism cultivated a fusion of function, comfort and carefully chosen materials – a practical beauty characterized by warm finishes and a connection to the natural world.’

The publication showcases important pieces by Arne Jacobsen, Vilhelm Lauritzen, Poul Kjærholm, Fritz Henningsen, Hans J. Wegner and more.
