When you have the luxury of spending a couple of nights in a new city, one of the great benefits is doing a little exploration. Last month I had that opportunity when I visited Göteborg, a city on the southern east coast of Sweden, almost equidistant between Copenhagen and the Norwegian border.
Göteborg is home to Röhsska Museet, a wonderful museum of design and craft. Apart from having a permanent collection of design history which I highly recommend, one of their current exhibitions is Unmaking Democratic Design: Fredrik Paulsen.
For our friends and customers in Melbourne, there are still a few days left to catch a wonderful exhibition celebrating a legend of Australian mid-century design.
Clement Meadmore: the Art of Mid-Century Design is the first major survey examining the design practice of this seminal designer – and it took ten years to bring this perfectly-formed exhibition together.
