Due to the Corona virus outbreak this meeting has been cancelled

Saturday May 9, 2020, 1:30 PM at Redemption Lutheran Church, 4057 North Mayfair Rd. (Hwy. 100, just north of Capitol Drive) Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.

Swedish Design and the United States. Based on the Scandinavian Design exhibition planned at the Milwaukee Art Museum, May 15- Sep 7, 2020, Swedish designers and their designs will be discussed.

There are certain characteristics that set Swedish design apart. One is environmentally friendly production, which has a long tradition in Sweden. Transparency is another, for products as well as production – it’s often easy to see how a product is made and of what material, and producers are open about the production process.

The classic Swedish emphasis on functionality and reduced form has undergone a change, and today sophisticated color schemes, a broad range of sustainable materials and conceptual ideas form a new diversity. In recent years collaborations between design producers and small-scale crafts industries has also established itself as an important aspect of contemporary Swedish design.
