Following the success of Bolon’s Bold Women in Design series, in partnership with L&L Lectures, Bolon is delighted to invite you to a 5-part programme of evening lectures on Scandinavian Design.
They will be exploring the development of Nordic Design, from the National Romantic movement c.1900 to the distinctive modernism of the 1920’s and 1930’s, and from the organic forms of the Post-War period to the colourful vibrancy and experimental forms of the 1960’s and 1970’s. The work of key figures, including Alvar Aalto, Tapio Wirkkala, Hans Wegner, Arne Jacobsen, Oiva Toikka, Gunnel Nyman, Ingeborg Lundin and Kaj Frank and of companies such as Iittala, Orrefors and Svenskt Tenn, are considered within their social and cultural context.
Drinks, nibbles and mingle at 17:45. Lectures take place 18:30 – 19:30.
