Co-edited by Gestalten CEO Robert Klanten along with editors Angel Trinidad and Sven Ehmann, the book also profiles a mix of emerging talent and renowned brands that have influenced the Nordic design industry.

"Design firms such as Hay, Ferm Living and Frama are highlighted and extolled for the new layer of warmth and energy that they bring to contemporary Danish design, while honouring that Scandinavian aesthetics and spaces need to be both liveable and logical," explained the publishing house.

The book also details projects that feature traditional Scandinavian materials – like tile, wood, glass and ceramics – which have been reappropriated and used for modern pieces of furniture and homeware.

"Scandinavia Dreaming presents dazzling interiors, architecture and products that show the richness, variety and intensity of contemporary Nordic spaces," said Gestalten.
