Scandinavian Modern Design in Norway

February 11, 2023 @ 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM

Scandinavian Modern Design in Norway Presentation by Laurann Gilbertson

February 11, 2023 | 1:30 p.m. (PT)

Location: Nordic Spirit Symposium, Samuelson Chapel – California Lutheran University, Thousand Oaks, CA

The Scandinavian American Cultural and Historical Foundation Nordic Spirit Symposium features Scandinavian Design in 2023. Vesterheim Chief Curator Laurann Gilbertson will present Scandinavian Modern Design in Norway during this in-person symposium.

Norway’s contributions to the Scandinavian Modern Design movement were many, but the artists and products were not as well known as their Danish, Swedish, and Finnish counterparts. During the presentation, Laurann will introduce some of the most important designers of the mid-twentieth century and learn about their work in furniture, textiles, silver, glass, ceramics, and enamel.

This presentation is part of the Saturday afternoon session of the symposium. Find out more about the entire symposium and how you can attend on their website here. You can download a PDF of their registration form to mail here.

Vesterheim looks forward to meeting many friends at this event!
