Scandinavians are famous for their exceptional design skills. They are world famous for their inimitable, democratic designs, overcoming the discrepancies between handicraft and industrial production.

Still in the 1990s, neomodernism dominated, and Swedish design defended traditional values such as simplicity and functionality as well as light types of wood . Emotional values are as important as functionality for Swedish design and arts handicraft today. Everything is questioned and put to the test: aesthetic standards as well as working methods.
