It was the golden age of the 1950s and 60s when Scandinavian Design became a dominant international trend and New Zealand fell under the influence of Nordic designers.

Join design writer, researcher, curator and historian Michael Smythe for an illustrated talk that will reveal the extent of this influence on New Zealand design during the post-WWII years.
