Scandinavian Art and Design Gallery
MORE NORTH gave Koko the opportunity to design a new gallery and exhibition space devoted to the best of both classic and contemporary art and design from the Nordic countries of Europe. MORE NORTH is specifically devoted to offering timeless Nordic art and design classics, as well as the best representatives of the dynamic fine arts and fine crafts scene in the Scandinavian countries, including Iceland, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway.
The gallery seeks to create a new environment to reflect the simplicity and timeless beauty of Nordic design. MORE NORTH has created a distinctive 3,800 square foot space that itself offers the sense of calm and serenity – long identified with these countries and their artistic traditions. Features include white concrete floors and floating paper-thin metal walls. 25-foot tall birch trees connect the ground floor with the lower level children’s gallery. In addition to shows by major Nordic painters and sculptors, presented in a defined gallery space, MORE NORTH also will display for sale Scandinavian furniture – including Danish and Finnish children's furniture -- glass, ceramics and textiles. Six major exhibitions will be mounted each year -- with each show to run for two months.
