The international design platform Adorno presents a landmark exhibition of contemporary design from the five Nordic countries, aiming to showcase the commonalities and contrasts between the modern design cultures of Norway, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Iceland.
Developed in collaboration with a team of curators drawn from each of the participating countries, Now Nordic will present collectible pieces from emerging and established designers working at the intersection of art, design and craft. Encompassing both digital and physical exhibitions, the project aims to introduce international audiences to the variety, scope and ambition of Nordic design today – and to explore whether the characteristics that have historically defined it are still evident in our increasingly globalised creative culture.
The exhibition was launced at Chart Art Fair in Copenhagen in 2018, from there it went to London and now it is in Iceland in connenction with DesignMarch.
