The exhibition presents contemporary design in Poland and Norway, which has become one of the top areas of culture, playing an important role in the foreign promotion of the two countries. One of the main trends in both Polish and Norwegian design is the use of vernacular tradition in the context of techniques and materials, as well as invoking the concept of sustainable development. The exhibition is an attempt at showing mutual Polish‑Norwegian correlations and affinities in design from the last fifteen years. The issue is illustrated by specific
works of Polish and Norwegian designers, already awarded and recognized in the world or most recent ones. The display will include Polish exhibits from the Ethnographic Museum in Kraków and Norwegian items from the Sverresborg Trøndelag Folkemuseum, exemplifying traditional crafts – contemporary source of inspiration both in shaping new forms, and in the philosophy and strategy of today’s design.

The exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum in Trondheim, which is one of the branches of MIST (Museene i Sør-Trøndelag / Museums of South Trøndelag).

The exhibition will be presented at the Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrie Museum from 6.04.2017 to 4.06.2017.
