Furnishing Utopia: a cross-border collaboration between Nordic and U.S. designers
The Shaker style is a U.S. furniture and interiors style that originated from a religious, ascetic independent church movement. The Shaker movement’s woodworkers reinterpreted traditional design with a focus on simplicity and function. As part of a collaboration between Hancock Shaker Village and Mt. Lebanon Shaker Museum, 12 international designers participated in a workshop. The designers were then invited to design objects that translate the Shaker objects’ aesthetics into contemporary forms that fit modern life. The outcome of these designs is a combination of pure lines and natural materials and can be seen in an exhibition at Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair. Participants include Studio Gorm (USA), Studio Tolvanen (Finland), Norm Architects (Danmark), Lars Beller Fjetland (Norway), Hallgeir Homstvedt (Norway) and others. AG:38
