Swedish design

I have said it before; sometimes it feels good to look back and find inspiration and motivation in work I have already done.

Most of you know by now that I'm a regular contributor to NO magazine. Mostly I write about design, but I also write about food and drinks. In the next couple of days I'll share some of the things I have written for NO lately.

The theme of issue 19 of NO (published in April 2008) was Sweden. I wrote about Swedish design and other visual arts. Read the whole article here on my work website. Yes, it's in Norwegian, but here are some teasers for you who don't understand my language.
