Common Copies Of The Great Man's Work
All around the world with most parts of Europe an exception (only 3 countries do not adhere to the EU Intellectual Property (IP) law), we are surrounded by copies of famous and iconic Scandinavian designs from establishments trying to achieve that certain Scandinavian "Style".
