For the duration of Nordic Cool 2013, the Terrace Gallery will become the Cool Club, an extension of the Nordic Design Illustrated exhibition. The Cool Club will feature the iconic Arne Jacobsen Series 7 chairs, on loan from Fritz Hansen, the Embassy of Denmark in Washington, D.C., and Furniture from Scandinavia, and a new curtain made from fabric by Marimekko.
Praised for his technical and emotional musicality, Gjermund Larsen is an award-winning Norwegian violinist/fiddler and composer. Formed in 2006, the Gjermund Larsen Trio sees him performing with Andreas Utnem (organ & piano) and Sondre Meisfjord (double bass). Larsen is a fiddler distinguished by the gentle warmness of his tunes, the natural tempt of his melodies, and the broad variety of music that ranges from catchy dance tunes to calm meditations.
