Design Exhibition Aurora – Nordic Conditions
January 25, 2016
Summit and Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair presents Aurora – Nordic Architecture and Design, an exhibition that takes a closer look at what makes Nordic design unique and displays examples of Swedish housing architecture. The exhibition consists of two parts, one focusing on architecture, The Common Good! and one focusing on design, Nordic Conditions.
There are many things that Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland have in common. Historical connections reaching far back in time have today resulted in very similar cultures. In terms of design, the well-known term “Scandinavian design” is often used to refer to the design from the Nordic region, but despite their similarities, the conditions for the five design scenes are very different. This exhibition showcases the designs that have been created out of the unique conditions present in each of the five Nordic countries.
