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.
Based in the Faroe Islands, Yggdrasil was founded in 1981 by the Danish composer and pianist Kristian Blak, a 2011 nominee of the Nordic Council Music Prize. Its members have varied musical backgrounds, mainly in jazz, but also in ethnic, folk, rock, and classical music. While the works draw ideas or themes from ethnic material, improvisation ranges from free to classical style.
