Staffan is designing the Nordic House for the Scandinavia Show together with Annika Vallgren and the rest of the STDG commercial team.
“I am very excited about creating the different rooms and including furniture that will be representative of the specific time periods,” says Tollgård. “Great designs take themselves out of a timeline, so the surprise will be putting them back into their context. I think visitors to the house will see that Scandinavian design has been consistently ahead of the curve – that the Gustavian period and the mid-century modern aren’t as historically unfamiliar as one would expect. The challenge for me is going to be narrowing down the designs from the huge selection of great Scandinavian pieces that represent each era.”
