„New Scandinavian Design“ is the topic of the public guided tour offered by the Red Dot Design Museum Essen on the occasion of the World Heritage Day 2015 at Zollverein coal mine on Sunday, 7 June 2015. From 3–4.30 p.m., visitors will discover award-winning product designs from far north and find out what makes them so special.
Scandinavian design, which came up in the middle of the 20th century, enjoys high popularity thanks to its pure elegance, discrete colours and well-conceived functionality. The minimalist creations fascinate with understatement, naturalness and practical usage.
During their tour of the 4,000 m² large exhibition visitors will find out that Scandinavian designs are highly characterised by traditional arts and crafts combined with the most modern manufacturing techniques and sustainability. This is also reflected in the products from various fields: in furniture, working tools, kitchen utensils and many more.
