Issue 8 of nomad magazine takes a look at the north. We visit Snøhetta, the globally esteemed Oslo-based architects’ office and interview one of its founders, Kjetil Trædal Thorsen. In a former pumping station in Berlin, we meet with Danish-Norwegian artistic duo Elmgreen & Dragset. We talk to Sissel Tolaas, a Norwegian smell artist und olfactory researcher and Julia Lohmann, a design professor at Alvar Aalto University in Helsinki, who applies a critical design perspective to an examination of the potential of marine algae. Photographer Marzena Skubatz contributes a portrait of Brekka, a remote village in the East Fjords of Iceland and takes us to Ella Marie Hætta Isaksen, a Norwegian Sámi musician who combines modernity and the traditions of the Sámi. Oliver Godow, artist, photographer and participant at the oslobiennalen 2019, photographed for nomad the series ‘New Light City’ an homage to the city of Oslo and its transformation. At the heart of traditional Aschau in Upper Bavaria, Nils Holger Moormann lives and breathes a completely different design culture with his furniture production and we learn to know his new chair “Bruto”. And Melanie Kurz, professor of design theory and design history in Aachen, portrays Swedish designer Carl Larsson and his book ‘Ett hem’ (A Home), that has been written over 100 years ago.
