Northern Delights reveals why hardly any other interior or product design is so timeless, so functional, so aesthetic, and of such high quality as that of Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Denmark. The book’s stunning selection of Scandinavian design ranges from individual products to skillfully staged living spaces. Although it also presents iconic designs, the book focuses on the work of young talents who are consciously building upon local sustainable design traditions and further developing them in a way that is consistent, intelligent, and reflects an unerring sense of style. Northern Delights showcases classic, minimal, rustic, and pop styles that are united by their simplicity, functionality, and love of light. The included examples show how the grains of different woods, the clarity of colored glass, the cheery colors of fabrics and patterns, and the overall quality of craftsmanship contribute to creating simple, inviting, and very comfortable spaces. Whether the featured work was created for residences, offices, or any other rooms, in a Scandinavian interior, everyone feels at home.

The world of Scandinavian architecture is a visual vault of grace, understated elegance, function, and tradition.

Artisans fresh from design school breathe new life into the traditional usage of tile, wood, glass, ceramics, and other customarily Nordic materials. Northern Delights Vol.2 tells their story and that of their predecessors: an aesthetic and historic journey through a world of style and heritage. Reading between the sleek lines and delving into the rich traditions: the balanced and stylish aesthetic of Scandinavian architecture inspires global mimicry.
