Marimeko, Bang and Olufsen, Volvo. The Scandinavian region has a rich design pedigree, one that New Zealand business culture could no doubt learn from.
And you can! In a similar format to the Better by Design conference, next month's Norse Code (March 15 at the University of Auckland Business School) promises a full day of keynote speeches from big names from the Scandinavian design world and with round tables of 10 designed to promote discussion.
If unlocking the principles of Scandinavian design in business is something you could benefit from, check out the full schedule online.
We also have one pass valued at $195 to give away to a lucky Idealog reader - to be in to win a ticket, leave a comment and tell us about one Scandinavian brand/product you adore and why. Closes February 28.
