An exploration of design, business, food & design

Monocle & Thames & Hudson, 2022
Monocle heads north in this exploration of Nordic design, business, food and fashion.
The Nordic region has long fostered a distinct set of values that have helped its nations excel in quiet diplomacy, thoughtful design and reasoned debate and Monocle’s editors have returned time and again for inspiration on how to live better. This book looks beyond the clichés and uncovers the folks, firms and stories that help the region rank highly in everything from art and architecture to eating well. Join us as we meet the retailers reaching higher in Reykjavík and experience Helsinki’s hottest hospitality. We will introduce you to Norway’s most notable designers and the Danish dishes not to be missed. We may even swing past a Swedish crayfish party and strip off at a sauna or two.
