“Lagom. Scandinavian sufficiency philosophy”. New Media Digital art drawing by Calinicenco Iryna (Cairyna Art).
Lagom is the philosophy, rule and way of life of the Swedes. The most understandable explanation for foreigners is the word “sufficiency” – no more, no less. It is a graceful balance between needs and possibilities, a compromise between “want” and “need”. Living by the lag principle means taking exactly as much as necessary.
I was inspired by a TV show about the culture and lifestyle of the Swedes. Their philosophy is Lagom. So simple and straightforward. As a counterbalance to the usual consumer attitude towards life.
Simple form. A circle. Ring. Simple colours. And how much sense!
