For a long time, the Europe of design split into two distinct traditions: one, Latin, dominated by Italy; the other, Nordic, dominated by Denmark and, to a lesser extent, Finland and Sweden. These two traditions, born in very different cultural, climatic, economic and technical contexts, have successively dominated the world: the Scandinavian from the 1930s to the 1970s; the Italian, from the 70s to the end of the 2000s.
Since the 2000s, Scandinavian design has undergone a spectacular renaissance, which has allowed the re-edition of many forgotten treasures, while contemporary design has begun to increasingly internationalize push.
