How Scandinavia Influenced Design in Canada

Book - 2016
Rate this:
True Nordic presents a comprehensive look at more than nine decades of Nordic and Scandinavian aesthetic influence in Canadian craft, design and industrial production. The book offers a broad historical survey of Canadian-made ceramics, furniture, textiles and metalware inspired by the aesthetics of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Estonia. The design culture and movements of the Nordic countries have been the most significant in the development of Canadian design sensibility since 1920. Scandinavian design resonated with Canadians and was viewed as appropriate for the realities of domesticity and modernizing life. Praised for its material sensitivity and regarded as both modern and humble, progressive but quiet, Scandinavian and Nordic design resonated with Canada's ongoing efforts to find a fitting stylistic and culturally appropriate language.
