Ö Nordic things – a space with a Scandinavian view.
Ö is the last letter in the swedish alphabet and also the word for ”island”, a land mass completely surrounded by water. It’s an area separated from the mainland, but still part of it.
Ö nordic things is a small piece of territory in the center of Turin, just a few square meters, a courtyard to be precise, with an all through nordic perspective.
The truth is that it all started with a quite vague idea based on homesickness, curiosity, passions (not to say obsessions), work, life experience and some odd coincidences …
Maria is an interior designer that works mainly with creating narrative ambients and visual identities, but also with styling and creative consultancy.
She grew up in Sweden with a swedish mother and a greek father (yes, it is confusing) moved to Italy, forgot to leave and started to develop an uncontainable homesickness that gradually transformed into picking out scandianavian design and bring it a bit closer.
