True Nordic' was curated by Rachel Gotlieb and Michael Prokopow for the Gardiner Museum in Toronto, 2016. This landmark exhibition explores more than seven decades of Nordic aesthetic influence in Canadian design. Examining the ways that modern Scandinavian design was introduced to Canada and how its aesthetic principles and material forms were adopted and adapted by Canadian artisans and designers, 'True Nordic' presents a comprehensive, critical survey of Canadian furniture, ceramics, textiles, metalwork, and glassware.
FELT spool stool is among works by other contemporary Canadian designers including Brothers Dressler, Heidi Earnshaw, MSDS studio, Katherine Morley, Castor, Molo Design, Loyal Loot and many others.
The exhibition travelled to the Vancouver Art Gallery and the New Brunswick Museum through 2017.
