Francesca Gatti, in her Danord showroom at Sassuolo (MO), selects historic Scandinavian design pieces, combining them with new items. The displays create the atmosphere of a private home, suspended between tradition and innovation.
The Danord selection focuses on a simple, essential language, found in Nordic design, but also in different, parallel worlds. The design icons of Scandinavia – true museum pieces – are shown alongside the sophisticated, minimal creations of emerging designers. Stylistic affinities are also revealed by articles from faraway regions, such as lamps from Thailand or English rugs woven by hand on antique looms.
