Lulla doll in a Nordic Design exhibition

We are very proud to tell you that the Lulla doll is a part of the exhibition, The Century of the Child: Nordic Design for Children from 1900 to Today. The show opened last week in the Nordic House in Iceland.

The show is a travelling pop up design exhibition and has already been displayed in New York USA, Denmark and Finland. Next stop is Berlin, Germany.

This exhibition compiles for the first time Nordic design for children from the beginning of the 20th century to the present day. Its title comes from an international pamphlet by the Swedish social reformer Ellen Key declaring the 20th century to be the century of the child. We certainly agree!

The Nordic countries have been considered forerunners in the design of environments for children. The exhibition features furniture, toys, books, clothing, school architecture, playgrounds and public spaces, posters and advertising, health-care and safety products, art projects and aids for children.

The exhibits include prime examples of Nordic design, such as baby high chair 616 by Ben af Schultén and IKEA furniture, and work by world-famous names such as Alvar Aalto, Kay Bojesen, Olafur Eliasson and Tove Jansson. Finnish pioneers of design for children included in the exhibition are Kaj Franck, Artek, Lappset and the maternity products package provided by the National Pensions Institute KELA. Work by a number of unknown and anonymous designers are also in the show. In addition, the exhibition presents the Nordic origins of internationally beloved brands such as BRIO, LEGO and Marimekko and historical and modern innovations for broader audiences.

If you are in Iceland and a lover of beautiful and thoughtful design.. and want to indulge your inner child, be sure to check it out.
