    Per Unckel Secretary General Nordic Council of Ministers “Celebrating Scandinavian Design” p5p5 – With the exhibition Scandinavian Design Beyond the Myth the Nordic Council of Ministers is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the “Scandinavian Design” as a worldwide phenomenon Scandinavian design has been the topic of scholarly debates aesthetic merit and popular appeal for the last fifty years Widar Halén “Fifty Years of Scandinavian Design – and After” pp7 13p7 – Despite the mock funeral service held in 1980 for the term Scandinavian design by a group of Oslo designers Scandinavian design ideals that emerged in the 1950s have survived in the Nordic countries This must be seen in part as the result of an international interest in the original and avant garde design of this important era In recent years a broad cross section of an international body of designers has found considerable inspiration in this Golden Age of Scandinavian design as well as in the most recent manifestations of contemporary design in which the demand for minimalism stylisation and a new interpretation has been dominant In spite of the significance accorded by historians and critics to the work of the earlier period many Scandinavian designers have felt it as a burden but to an even greater number it has imparted inspiration and self assurance In the course of half a century Scandinavian design has become an established phenomenon retaining the positive resonance it enjoyed when it first emerged in the international consciousness During the flowering of postmodernism in the 1970s and 1980s it fell out of focus By the early 1990s however it made a comeback as witnessed by the remarkable number of exhibitions symposiums and articles devoted to this concept as well as by the designers who have openly proclaimed its significance to their own output and by manufacturers who have used it for complex marketing agendas Traditionally Scandinavian design has been associated with simple uncomplicated designs functionality and a democratic approach that has sought to bring well designed objects to the broadest cross section of the populace at the least possible cost per unit These are the salient characteristics that must be emphasised as significant in the light of recent research on the many kinds of modernism in the twentieth century p8 – The near monolithic perception of Nordic solidarity that had dramatically solidified in the twentieth century particularly during the Second World War led to a number of post war combined exhibitions the most important ones described in detail in this volume As early as 1945 the Danes had initiated a conference where the planning of a large combined Nordic decorative arts congress was to take place It was organized in Copenhagen in 1946 followed by a gathering in Oslo in 1948 Stockholm in 1950 and again in Oslo in 1952 concluding with a conference in Helsinki in 1954 A general consensus emerged in the course of these conferences that the Nordic countries could be perceived as an entity when it came to design issues The housing problem and post war reconstruction that faced these nations had a unifying effect and through collaboration exchange of ideas and exhibitions it was considered possible to strengthen the development of a Nordic design language p9 – Since then museums and galleries worldwide have arranged exhibitions covering this theme The first and most important exhibition was Design in Scandinavia shown in the United States and Canada between 1954 57 It has been said that the designation Scandinavian design was introduced during the tour of this exhibition The history of the exhibition leading up to its inauguration in 1954 revels a remarkable diplomacy and hard work on the part of the organisers Among other things there was nervousness concerning so called communist elements that might be perceived by American critics and visitors to the show and a certain anxiety as to what would be brought across the Atlantic British design historian Kevin Davies has proven that the term Scandinavian design was launched in England in 1951 when the Nordic countries exhibited together for the first time in a relatively modest exhibition Scandinavia at Table organised by The British Council of Industrial Design in London and running simultaneously with a commercial exhibition at Heal’s Department Store Scandinavian Design for Living Constructing Scandinavian Designp15 – The designation “Scandinavian design” was first used in the title of an exhibition at Heal’s Department store in London in 1951 It was called Scandinavian Design for Living and was the commercial counterpart of the exhibition Scandinavia at Table organized by the British Council of Design the same year This was the first time the Nordic countries held a collaborative exhibition of industrially produced design and decorative arts outside the Nordic world The exhibition Design in Scandinavia travelled in North America between 1954 57 and became a tremendous success in the United States The Triennale exhibitions in Milan during the 1950s also contributed to the creation of the concept “Scandinavian design” as the style of the modern Nordic democracies; light modest and functional Mirjam Gelfer Jørgensen “Scandinavianism – a Cultural Brand” pp17 25p19 – 1872 was the year in which the first Nordic Exhibition of Industry and Art took place in Copenhagen The success was repeated in 1888 and it is this exhibition that is reckoned to be the first important indication of what Nordic decorative arts and industry could achieve However the international demonstration that something ne was on the way only came the following year at the 1889 World Fair in Paris and the true breakthrough took place in the 1900 Paris World Fair In addition to their participation – often side by side – in the international exhibitions from then onwards the Nordic countries also mounted regular purely Nordic exhibitions in order to strengthen the sense of community to inspire then all and also to mark the special character of each country In the 1862 Paris World Fair some Danish jewelry in the Old Norse style was exhibited but although several remarkable sets of jewelry were created the style did not really take hold in neo classical Denmark It was the Anglo American world that invented the term Scandinavian design in the 1950s but the Nordic countries uickly adopted it Symbols of Modernityp57 – Scandinavian design became a worldwide term when the exhibition Design in Scandinavia travelled in North America during three years 1954 57 This exhibition was highly influential in the development of a new type of modernism in the USA and in Europe as was the exhibition Formes Scandinaves held in Paris 1958 59 Claire Selkurt “Design for Democracy – Scandinavian design in Postwar America” pp59 65p59 – The Scandinavian nations initiated a major campaign to capture the American market in the years directly following WWII The exhibition Design in Scandinavia 1954 57 provided a watershed between the early postwar era and developments in the late 1950s the years immediately following this show were marked by a well orchestrated series of smaller exhibitions increased attention from American critics and a pronounced growth in importation that peaked at the end of the decade During this period the classic Scandinavian style reached full maturity and became a significant force in the development of a distinctive direction within American modernism The Scandinavian postwar campaign was built however upon prior developments in the 1920s and 1930s including exhibitions of Danish silver and decorative art contemporary Swedish design and the world expositions in Paris in 1937 and in New York in 1939 By the late 1930s the graceful bentwood forms of the Finn Alvar Aalto and the Swede Bruno Mathsson became synonymous with the humanized modernism that was to prove so popular with Americans after war
