In 2006 I designed a Nordic skin care series using high quality Nordic ingredients which paid particular attention to realizing Nordic design principles in packaging. Purely Nordic Products were created in co-operation with Höganäs Keramik and Föllinge Hälsoprodukter.
We know that there are certain indoor environments and objects that make us feel good and others that don't. What is it that makes the difference? Is it just taste and cultural heritage or is there more? Are there any basic elements of design that reach out to each of us as humans and that, irrespective of individual taste and cuture, we recognize as appealing?
In my book, "On My Swedish Island: Discovering the Secrets of Scandinavian Wellbeing" I take an unprecedented look at the elements of the famous Scandinavian design that have appealed not only to Scandinavians but to people all over the world. I look into state-of-the-art thinking about design and health and apply this to Scandinavian design to explain that special brand of Nordic feng shui.
