Skandium has been sharing its stylish edit of modern Scandinavian designs with the shoppers of London for 17 years. Now, it wants to shine a spotlight on Norway in particular. Its ‘Icons of Norway’ exhibition (4–14 February at Skandium’s Brompton Road store, SW3) will champion great Norwegian products and designers from 1940 to the present day.

In reference to the importance of local manufacturing, every product in the exhibition is designed and made within the country’s borders. Each object will be available to purchase during the exhibition.
