Scandinavian MIND – Issue 02: The Great Tech Infusion
Scandinavian MIND is a magazine covering the intersection of lifestyle and technology.
We believe that convergence of different fields is the way forward for technology, fashion, design, mobility, entertainment, gaming, and other industries.
As a magazine, it is our mission to shine a light on the people, projects, places, and products that impact the world in a positive way. We do this by telling engaging stories through writing, photography, film, and audio.
We have a global view with a Nordic mindset. We believe that our region’s core values — innovation, equality, sustainability, and social justice — is the perfect lens through which we should view the world.
Our content is aimed at early adopters, opinion leaders, industry insiders, and other curious minds that want to keep a close eye on the Scandinavian market and get an update on key global events.
The second print issue of Scandinavian MIND probes deep into the ways technology is changing our way of living. From everyday objects to epic art installations, from furniture to flying cars.
One of two covers features Isabelle Olsson, arguably one of the most powerful Scandinavian designers today, responsible for all hardwear design at Google. We visit Isabelle in her San Francisco home, where she talks about ”rehearsing the future”.
The other cover portrays Jacob Felländer, whose art installations blur the lines between photography, fashion, music, and virtual and augmented reality. For one year, we’ve followed Jacob in quest to create his biggest work yet.
The issue features two major specials. One is about the innovations that are changing our everyday life: nano textiles, solar panels, air purifiers, meditation booths, clothing subscriptions, and much more.
The other focuses on the exponential transformation in mobility, with everything from electric airplanes and self-driving trucks, to hyperloops and futuristic ferries.
Also: interviews with Susanne Najafi, Emma Ridderstad, Robin Douglas Westling, Sofie Allert, Jacob Mühlrad, Alexander Wessely, and much more.
