NL1 MAGAZINE: A Nordic State of Mind

The Nordic has become much admired across the world. The Nordic countries are somewhat mysterious: Vast lands of boreal forests, fjords and rocky landscapes, cool waters and rain.
Yet, there is a lightness and warmth that pervades the darkness.

It seems, as if the North changes the visitor in some way. It activates our inner stories, voices and dreams. It is inspiring and grounding at the same time.

Nordic nature is so strong in its appearance, it fixes us on the human essentials, we seek the hidden truths about ourselves.
The North uncovers the inner calm.

People of the North live in harmony with the elements, they embrace the harsh conditions and find opportunities to create their own light. They bring nature home through furniture and natural light.

The Nordic Mindset consists of awareness and acceptance, strong, yet gentle.
Rather than living in resistance Nordic people embrace the harsh conditions of their surrounding and make the best of them.

The colors, the light, the dark, the cold, the fog. We do love the magnitude of the North, its pride, its dominance that let you humbly accept that a single human being is always connected to nature as mighty fortitude.
