In 1980 industrial designer Henrik Wahlforss decided to leave his designer career and write a book about a sustainable society in the year 2030. In his manifesto, Henrik describes in great detail a pan-Nordic society built on the collective will to live in harmony with nature. Technology has changed the meaning of work, cars are collectively owned and run on renewable energy, consumerism is out of fashion and locally sourced food is available to everyone. Future Remains follows Henrik’s irreversible journey to the year 2030. The traces lead to the present day, where Henrik’s adult son Eric is finding his own way into the future. What was Henrik trying to tell us with the book?
