The Swedish design practice Form Us With Love recently unveiled their design for the ‘Dandy’ exhibition at Nordiska Museet in Stockholm. The exhibition examines this 18th and early 19th century’s lifestyle and presents the details that makes the typical Dandy.

“What is a dandy? What does he look like? Some say a dandy is a particular person. Others say a dandy is a way of life. The architecture of the exhibition dissect the dandy into pieces. It consists of dismembered mannequins, fused with MDF boxes which then has been laqcuered in a slate grey, giving the illusion that a stonecutter has started working on sculptures, but only finished the parts essential for the exhibition pieces.”

“The exhibition gives examples of how a contemporary Dandy could look. Tailor Frederik Andersen, fashion researcher Rickard Lindqvist, journalist Olaf Enckell, stylist Lalle Johnson, author Björn af Kleen, designer Göran Sundberg and shop owner Christian Quaglia have all given their suggestions on the modern style dandy.”


The exhibition is on display until May 1, 2011. Nordiska museet is situated on Djurgården.
