Museum update

A museum as a meeting place, literally speaking, is a vision that was first tried and tested in art contexts in the nineties. The lounge-like installations popped up here and there, embodying a high level, albeit with low thresholds. This apparent openness has since spread. The Nordic Museum's new theatre is an offshoot of the concept. It is meant as a venue for events like concerts and debates, as well as socialising in line with Artur Hazelius's vision of parties, people and packedness in true Nordic style. Responsible for the interior is Halleroed. A deep blue floor, natural linen and light coloured walls, but the furniture series Meden is the icing on the cake. Made of radially sawn pine in collaboration with the joinery Tre Sekel.
