Highlights include: Henrik Vibskov and the Mindcraft 17 artists and designers, Olafur Eliasson and Anders Byriel (CEO Kvadrat), Jan Gehl, and much more. The highly collectible bookazine also presents a bound-in design insert, that delves into the stories of heritage brands in the Nordic world. By charting relationships around craftsmanship, tradition and a deep appreciation for quality and material, Oak uncovers the DNA of innovative Nordic companies and designers who continue to push the boundaries of creativity.
