Known for bringing obscure art into broader public view, Taschen Books' "Scandinavian Design" is a tribute to the exceptionally gifted northern design eye. Bridging the gap between crafts and industrial production, the marriage of organic form with everyday functionality is highlighted as one of the region's primary strengths. Acting as a guide, this book includes a detailed look at furniture, glass, ceramics, textiles, jewelry, metalware and industrial design from 1900 to present day. With in-depth entries on over 180 designers and companies (think Verner Panton, Arne Jacobsen and Stig Lindberg), this compilation of images is accompanied by essays comparing and contrasting the approach by region as well as a list of locations to visit for readers traveling to Scandinavia.
