Distortion by Merijn Hos
Colourful illustration by Merijn Hos, Netherlands. “I explored the concept of distortion for my design. I wanted to create a different point of view. I believe both the Nordic way of living and Nordic design always does this."
Solid Waves by Magnus Coll Mathiason
Colourful illustration by Magnus Voll Mathiassen, Norway. “The patterns reflect the longevity of Nordic design where simple needs meet the delicate, the sophisticated and the bold. All created within a solid, industrial framework with a strong base in craftsmanship.”
Anemone by Ugo Gattoni
Colourful illustration by Ugo Gattoni, France. “I wanted my design to spark a sense of wonder, so I created a surrealistic, floating composition of sea plants. A dreamy still life drawing, which is both vibrant yet delicate.”
