Scan Magazine | Editor’s Note

Dear Reader, I wasn’t going to ask this month’s cover star, Signe Egholm Olsen, about work-life balance, how becoming a mother has affected her career, and what the juggling is like. I am convinced that no one would ask her husband those questions, so it seemed irrelevant in the context of her success and exciting new film, The Hour of the Lynx. But our conversation around the film’s plot took us there, and the Danish actress told me that she feels blessed to have something that is more important than her work, something bigger than her. I had a real taste of what she meant during the production of the October issue of Scan Magazine, as I was submitted to hospital at 38 weeks pregnant and forced to hand over all editorial duties to my successor – the gifted, level-headed half-Swede, half-Norwegian, Julie Lindén – and indeed reminded that there are things in life you cannot control, things that are more important than work, no matter how much said work means to you. But it has been a really nice, not to mention appropriate, way to wrap up my time as editor of Scan Magazine – not just because I had the pleasure of interviewing the lovely Egholm Olsen. I took to the helm this time last year with a huge, jam-packed Nordic architecture theme, and this month, the circle is complete as we bring out another instalment of our annual architecture special, presenting everything from one-of-a-kind residential designs to inspiring office interiors, innovative product designs, and thought-provoking public institution

complexes. “Home is the most important place in the world,” goes the IKEA slogan; no one knows it – or does it – better than the Scandinavians. Just like my first issue as editor, my last boasts a bigger-thanusual design section, including reports from London Fashion Week and London Design Festival, this time with a special focus on Finland. Moreover, the humour section features this year’s last contribution from language specialist Adam Jacot de Boinod, while the culture section is bursting with excitement about the upcoming Ja Ja Ja Festival, which was absolutely brilliant last year and looks set to be even better this November. I am unlikely to make the festival this year, unfortunately, due to aforementioned circumstances – but if you can, I urge you to pop by, soak up the atmosphere only Nordic music can create, and perhaps bump into Scan Magazine’s new editor, Julie. Say what you want about what is important in life; she knows well that, for the most part, it is likely to be Scandinavian – and she is, no doubt, the right person to bring it to you.
