Delving into the histories of each Nordic country, Scandinavia Dreaming by Gestalten connects socio, economic and political histories to seeking joy and meaning through creativity and beauty; “Innovation begins with being open-minded and curious, able to parse a diversity of influences”.
The Gestalten book expresses a charming portrayal into Nordic interiors and design, all the while making careful distinctions between each of the five – Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland and Finland – countries.
The realm of Nordic design branches into two fundamental components; on the one hand, there is the elegant, highly modern and minimalist side while the other side leans toward proximity to nature. Bearing stark contrast to the first, the latter constituent is characterized by traits including warmth, openness, and folklore.
Accompanied by generous amounts of beautiful images, Scandinavia Dreaming: Nordic Homes, Interiors and Design offers tours into Nordic Homes, revealing intricate details of the homes’ interiors and design.
Across 147 pages, the book introduces designers from various countries while vivifying the Nordic landscapes, both urban and rural. Scandinavia Dreaming: Nordic Homes, Interiors and Design shows us not only the richness of, but also the mentality behind contemporary Nordic spaces.
