Furniture Design

Home and Office Furniture Design

Furniture and how it is designed and ultimately how we use it and interact with it, is totally bound up with our lives and how we live. Badly designed furniture may not look ugly but it can have serious negative impact on our live, bodies and mental health. As more and more of us need to work from home due to the global pandemic, we also have to consider what we need for our homes, and new home offices, whether it is an office chair, a drafting table, or decent lighting, this is now becoming a critical question for many. At Nordic Design Review, we look at mid century furniture designs as well as new designs from the Masters such as Herman Miller and the newcomer, Nouhaus.
