Is there a distinct Nordic identity? Does the concept of The Nordic Way geniunely exist? Can one, despite the tendency of globalization to erase national and cultural differences, still understand identity as something associated with a particular place? And if that is the case, how has the Nordic identity developed alongside the development of the rest of the world? These are some of the not uninteresting questions posed by the New Nordic – Architecture and Identity exhibition at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark.
Permafrost, a Norwegian design agency, was asked to create one of 30 small ‘Nordic Dioramas’ for the exhibition. Permafrost´s contribution is a set of wooden toys depicting modern day industrial icons, while at the same time honouring traditional Nordic craftsmanship.
