      Northern Lights: Scandinavian Design
    • Saturday, May 23, 2015
    • This exhibition surveys Scandinavian design from its triumphant showing at the 1900 World's Fair in Paris to the present day, placing a special emphasis on objects made in the mid-twentieth century, when an interest and appreciation for Scandinavian design reached new heights. A geographically diverse region, Scandinavia comprises five countries - Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Iceland - each with its own distinct cultural identity and traditions. Yet their shared socioeconomic and political history has played a significant role in the creation of a unique and largely unified approach to design.
