Scandinavian design

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Scandinavians are exceptionally gifted in design. They are world famous for their inimitable, democratic designs which bridge the gap between crafts and industrial production. The marriage of beautiful, organic forms with everyday functionality is one of the primary strengths of Scandinavian design and one of the reasons why Scandinavian creations are so cherished and sought after. Guided by the conviction that well-designed products can enhance the quality of life through their practical beauty, the Swedish design community's long-held credo of Vackrare Vardagsvara (More Beautiful Everyday Objects) will become increasingly valid in the future as the need for relevant design solutions becomes ever more imperative. This illuminating guide includes a detailed look at Scandinavian furniture, glass, textiles, jewellery, metal ware, and industrial design from 1900 to the present day. Each of the 179 illustrated entries on designer and design led companies contains a biographical and analytical text. the book's introduction provides an overview of the evolution of Scandinavian design over the past century and highlights the similarities and differences in approach between Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. Also included is a list of important design-related laces to visit for readers planning to travel to Scandinavia.
Overall in good condition, some marks on the front cover other than that can see no other signs of wear.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
