Reporting from lecture - What is Luxury

I was at the Nobel Museum this evening and attended a lecture on "What is Luxury?" presented by design students from Växjo University. They were assigned to design tableware for the Nobel banquet. They wanted to honor science and also give the concept of luxury a different meaning. Instead of focusing on traditional luxury symbols, they illustrated a new kind of luxury - peace, a good environment, good health and feeling safe. This is represented in their tableware called LOGIA. This is was very interesting perspective and here is a picture from the evening.
