Because it’s time to upgrade the Poäng chair
The Scandinavian aesthetic has influenced Canadian designers since the 1930s, when it first landed in our museum exhibitions, boutiques and style magazines. This retrospective explores over 70 years of Norse influence on Canadian furniture, ceramics, textiles, and glass and metal art, interrogating how émigrés from Denmark introduced Danish modern principles into the North American marketplace. The show features work by Carl Poul Petersen, Janis Kravis, John Stene, Karen Bulow, and more. Gardiner Museum, gardinermuseum.on.ca.
