This term doesn’t have a proper translation in other languages (unlike the “Lagom” concept, which means “just right”), but it can be described as: “the will of creating a cosy, pleasant and intimate atmosphere in which you can enjoy the pleasures of life surrounded by the people you love”. This concept reflects on the Scandinavian idea of design.
