"The intention behind Norwegian Icons: Important Norwegian Design is to raise international awareness of Norway’s significant contribution to Scandinavian mid-century modern design, alongside those of Denmark, Sweden, and Finland. Norwegian Icons tells the story of Norway’s design history through a series of exhibitions and catalogues."
