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.
One of Norway's most innovative and distinctive percussionists, Terje Isungset collects material from nature--wood, stone, metal, litter, ice--and creates new instruments out of it. He has even composed a musical work based on sounds from the world's largest oil platform. For his Icemusic, Isungset carves instruments out of pure ice, including some from the 600-year-old Jostedal glacier. The quality and temperature of the ice determine the sound of the instruments.
