GIGAhygge This blog is about the world, thing that we see it and experience it. Focus is on what is new, what’s moving, different and catching our eyes, when we are out there in the wilderness call reality. This is as you have already guessed a blog about trends – but to filter it, we have chosen to focus on ”hygge”. What is “GIGA” and what is ”hygge” GIGA is defined: Giga is derived from the Greek γίγας, meaning 'giant. Read more about giga here. With hygge is it much more difficult to define, what it is one of the aims of this blog – because in the way we describe it, we define it – but the bottom line is, that it is mostly a social thing, being and doing thing together, but it also includes the environment.
