This book tells the untold story of Snowcrash (1997-2003), an international design company founded by Finns and operated by Swedes. Equipped with an optimistic view of the future, they succeeded in designing a collection that connected art with technology, and the real with the virtual world. The story takes the reader from a Finland in deep recession in 1993, to Sweden in 2003 recovering from an IT-boom hangover. DIY spirit, bold visions, and progressive design management is played out and told by the international group of creatives involved – painting a picture of a design event that offers an alternative view on “Scandinavian Design”.
