Next month Glasgow plays host to more than 40 young designers who usually work in Scandinavia. ‘Young Nordic Design – The Generation X’ showcases the latest contemporary incarnations of a design style that is at once urban and close to nature. All five Nordic countries are represented. Work ranges from furniture pieces like Thomas Bernstrand’s threetier Wembley sofa to graphics like Kim HiorthÃ¸y’s album sleeves for Motorpsycho, and includes industrial, fashion and textile design. The exhibition runs from 14 September to 20 October at The Lighthouse in Mitchell Lane, Glasgow.
