Where is Nordic design heading today? The Global Nordic Design 2012 exhibition at Espoo’s museum of contemporary art offers the chance to become familiar with five influential world-class designers and designer teams from today’s Scandinavia, and thus evaluate the tradition of design and current changes. Fashion designer Steinunn Sigurdardottir (Iceland), industrial designer and sculptor Harri Koskinen (Finland), fashion designer Henkrik Vibskov (Denmark) and the furniture design teams Norway Says (Norway) and Front(Sweden) are all taking part in the show. During the last five years, all of these designers have received the Torsten & Wanja Söderberg award, which is the most valuable design award in the world in terms of money – the prize of one million Swedish crowns (approx. EUR 109,500) is presented to Scandinavian designers.
The exhibition takes place in Helsinki as the World Design Capital 2012, read more here.
