Celebrating the long and distinguished careers of UC Davis design professor emeritus Helge Olsen and his wife, Birgitta Olsen, this exhibition combines Helge’s wood furniture design with Birgitta’s woven wall tapestries — works that reflect the Olsens’ Scandinavian upbringing, training and design aesthetic, and which, when seen together, possess a compelling harmony of form and function.

Official opening: Thursday, Jan. 24 at 6 p.m., featuring Kjetil Fallan, guest scholar in the Department of Design and a leading scholar on Scandinavian related design.

Exhibit regular hours: Noon-4 p.m. weekdays and 2-4 p.m. Sundays.
