What is swedish design?
Thanks to or because of IKEA, today’s children have a good idea of what Swedish (or Scandinavian) design is, but is it possible to get past the clichés? Can we see the difference between IKEA’s design and what Swedish design really is? This is what we will focus on during this tour. Flash cards and keywords will help children to develop their strong sense of observation before discovering artworks and famous objects from Swedish design. Your child’s intuition will be the key to our discovery of what is genuinely Swedish and what isn’t. We will observe the colours, the materials and open new perspectives… Why do you think this colour has been used? And this shape? This material? The children will ask questions, discover, understand more… and surely remember! This tour is designed for children between 6 and 12 years old. It can vary depending on their age but also on the current exhibitions in Stockholm.
