Scandinavian Modern was the most influential and enduring design
movement of the 20th century, dominating the international scene in the
1950s and continuing to shape the way we live today. Architects and
designers from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland, were responsible
for a range of contemporary homes, furniture, textiles, ceramics,
glassware, and other products that defined an entire approach to modern
post-war living. What characterizes Scandinavian Modern is its
approachability; the use of natural materials and organic forms combined
with clean lines and attention to basic practicality and comfort. Scandinavian Home demonstrates this elegant, yet informal design at its best and most accessible.
