One of the things I miss about living in Europe, is the accessibility to Scandanavian design. During my time living in Spain, people all over Europe were enamored with Stockholm, Copenhagen, Oslo, Reykjavik, and the ever so close city, to the Scandanavian countries,…Berlin. These were destination cities. It was and still is a must to check out . Too bad I am no longer living in Spain as it was only a two hour flight away.
What was the interest about? Ideas that were yet so simple but unique at the same time. How could it be, I ask myself? Why do they come up with the freshest ideas and are able to make it so perfectly beautiful. Perhaps they are just pioneers? Perhaps they instinctively know less is more? Whatever it is, I can’t get enough of it and have to spend my research days finding out what is happening in these Nordic countries. A shopping trip is in plan to my beloved European countries.
Here are some of my favorite Scandinavian photos, fashion designers, furniture designers, and product designers.
