The Norwegian architects of Fantastic Norway have recently designed the architectural framework for an exhibition in Oslo, displaying young Norwegian design talents. The exhibition open this week end. The installation resembles a large pixilated cloud, constructed by more than 3000 hanging cardboard boxes.
‘Being that the exhibition is set to present brand new design objects, we decided to base the architectural concept on the thrill of unpacking. The installation consists of over 3000 hanging cardboard boxes resembling a large pixilated cloud, hovering over the exhibited material. The construction creates a large variety of spaces, from cave like to lifted and open areas, inside the 350m2 exhibition hall. The objects and design concepts are exhibited both inside and outside the boxes.
In an environmental perspective the ambition was to create an exhibition with focus on reuse and low material cost. The cardboard boxes will be recycled at the end of the exhibition, which only leaves wires as leftovers.’
