At the time of writing, Apple became the first company in the world to reach $1 trillion in market capitalization. The success of Apple's products lies in the integration of complex functions into minimalist design, which is the main feature of the Nordic interior style. Nordic design, also known as Scandinavian design, refers to the styles of Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Iceland.
In the 1930s, functionalism flourished at the Stockholm Expo, and in the 1950s the design of a combination of practical functional concepts and traditional Nordic crafts began to flourish in North America.
The Nordic furniture has the characteristics of simplicity and post-modernism. It focuses on smooth line design and represents a fashion and return to nature. Just speaking about chairs, there were Danish designer Arne. Jacobsen's Egg Chair, Finn Juhl's Chieftain Chair and Swedish master Bruno Mathsson's Pernilla Chair. These are the foundation works of the Nordic furniture.
Nordic people have a special styling talent. The Danish design is a classic on its own, the Swedes are good at creating fashion sense, the Finns are inspired by nature, and the Norwegians admire the thick and rustic style. They have a commonality in style, but they also embody different personalities.
In addition to the furniture, the decorative materials commonly used in the Nordic style are mainly wood, stone, glass and wrought iron. The original texture of these materials is preserved without exception, focusing on the organic combination of human and nature, society and environment. The concept of green design and sustainable design is naturally embedded.
The Nordic style emphasizes internal and external transparency in handling space and maximizes the introduction of natural light. The pursuit of smoothness; wall, floor, ceiling and furniture, as well as lighting utensils, etc., are characterized by simple shape, pure texture and fine craftsmanship. In terms of design color selection, the light color is white, beige or light wood color; or black and white gray is the main tone, and the bright solid color is used as the embellishment.
Just like Apple products, I believe Nordic design will continue to be the mainstream design style that everyone loves.
