The companion book to Nordic Architects highlights the contemporary talents working in a region that has long been celebrated for product, furniture and industrial design. The designers featured in this comprehensive, copiously illustrated volume are linked by their clean aesthetic, emphasis on craftsmanship, and empathy for the human experience in all its aspects. Designers in Nordic lands have led the world in the application of trends like universal accessibility and eco-friendly design. In informal interviews with 60 of the region's best known designers, such as Peter Opsvik, Front, and Ilkka Suppanen, writer and editor David Sokol explores the once and future Nordic identity, the demands of local manufacturing, and the competitive global marketplace. With hundreds of full-color photos and drawings.
