With more than five hundred full-colour illustrations, a compendium of the best modern furniture from the Nordic countries.
Scandinavia, comprised of five nations, produced some of the most popular furniture designs of the twentieth century, as well as the influential idea of “Scandinavian modern.” A new generation of designers is carrying on the tradition, making items that are both practical and pleasing to the eye. This book, the first American overview of modern design in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden in more than two decades, updates the history of design in the Nordic countries and features full-colour illustrations of over 500 pieces of contemporary furniture from over 70 manufacturers. The Sourcebook also contains product descriptions and references and biographies of notable Nordic designers, and a helpful bibliography. It is an indispensable resource for anyone interested in modern furniture and interior designers, architects, collectors, and students with a specific interest in Scandinavian design.
