There is a good definition about Scandinavian design on EXPO 2005 site, and here nothing to add…
From the 1950s on "Scandinavian design" has captivated a worldwide audience with its clean, simple lines, everyday functionality and quality workmanship. You\'ve probably experienced some of the best-known icons of Nordic design - Arne Jacobsen\'s Egg chair, IKEA, Jonas Bohlin\'s Concrete chair, Fiskars Scissors, or Poul Kjaerholm\'s series of furniture - to name but a few.
The essence of Nordic design will be evident throughout the Nordic Pavilion. The architecture and interior will offer a contemporary feel with clean lines and simple colors, and careful attention has been given to the use of stone and wood typical of the five countries.
In addition, a series of diverse design films and exhibits will tell the stories of more than 20 Nordic designers and design-led firms - including both newcomers and well-known names - selected for the inspiration and creativity behind their designs.
