Scandinavian interior design

It's no secret that Norwegians have a keen eye for stylish design, both indoors and outdoors. It's no wonder, then, that a significant number of MapaWall's wooden world maps find their homes in Norway. The quality craftsmanship and the abstract yet detailed design of these maps seamlessly complement the modern aesthetic of Norwegian interiors.

Where quality meets design

Scandinavian, particularly Norwegian, interior design epitomises modern functionality and sometimes minimalistic aesthetics. These characteristics are exemplified by the wooden map showcased in this example.

In the accompanying photo, a magnetic wooden world map crafted from European Oak is featured. The invisible magnetic feature arises from an iron-based layer just beneath the surface of the Oak rift wood, allowing small neodymium pin-magnets to stick to the wood. This innovative design enables travellers to mark their journeys or favourite destinations without defacing the wood with unsightly stickers or traditional pins/nails.

The European Oak Rift wood used for this map was specifically rift-cut, resulting in a tight grain pattern. Furthermore, the oak utilised by this company has minimal knots, enhancing its clean and sleek appearance—a perfect complement to Scandinavian-inspired interiors.

Also, this map was left untreated with oil or varnish, creating a striking contrast against the relatively dark wall backdrop and accentuating the world map's presence. Despite the map's substantial size, its placement within a room with high ceilings creates a sense of proportion and balance. It's no wonder this combination was picked as the winner, earning the distinction of Best Photo of 2018.
