Scandinavian Soirée.

Last night I attended a special event at SFMOMA celebrating Design House Stockholm and the practical beauty and innovation of Scandinavian design. Their outstanding design philosophy: "Don't make something unless it is both necessary and useful — but if it is both necessary and useful, don't hesitate to make it beautiful." Design House Stockholm's founder, Anders Fardig, spoke eloquently about their philosophy and introduced their newest product lines to a packed house of the most interesting of international characters, old and young-alike. I wish I could have audio-recorded the evening - the sound bites were priceless!

I was forced to purchase Marie-Louise Gustafsson's beautiful bicycle basket, Carrie, in
pristine white. Forced, I tell you! I can't wait to affix her to my bike and head out shopping.

Only Philippe Stark could dream of a chic fly swatter, and give it the name Dr. Scud.

If you'd like to see more of Design House Stockholm's useful and equally gorgeous products, visit their website, or drop into the SFMOMA Store.

Looks like a great evening - I love the owl light. I might have to check out their concession in London to see if they have it there!
