Be­cause it’s time to up­grade the Poäng chair

Toronto Life - - Culture -

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.
