Massive wooden ash bowls by StokkeAustad

These bowls by the Norwegian designer duo StokkeAustad are a beautiful example of modern, high quality handcraft and represent a masterpiece of turnery. Made from a single piece of Norwegian ash the pieces combine material-typical characteristics: the compactness of the solid, heavy base and the delicateness of the bowl’s thin wall.

'Groggy' by Tom Stepp for Northern Lighting

The Norwegian lighting manufacturer Northern Lighting developed this new floor lamp together with the Danish designer Tom Stepp. ‘Groggy’ is the perfect name for this figurative piece, which indeed looks a bit like a heavy hangover.

The Oslo based Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter realised this apartment complex in Grünerløkka, a borough of the Norwegian capital which used to be a typical working class area in the 19th century and is today one of Oslo’s hippest quarters. The block of the ‘K5′ building is a rare remaining example of the intimate blend of housing and small scale industry and the new structure is designed with special appreciation of this environment.

'Tinted Mirror' by Daniel Rybakken

The young Norwegian designer Daniel Rybakken is known for his subtle and decent work. The atmospheric influence of light and reflections is the central theme of his projects. With ‘Tinted mirror’ he unites two seperate objects, a wall mounted mirror and a hanging coloured glass plate to one three dimensional product, reaching from the wall out into the room. Depending on the ambient light the cast shadow on the wall changes over the course of the day.


'ARK booktower' by Rintala Eggertsson Arkitekter

Within the ‘1:1 – Architects Build Small Spaces’ exhibition at the V&A in London the Norwegian practice Rintala Eggertsson Arkitekter realised this wooden structure, a temporary, intimate, little library, in the middle of the stairwell that leads to the museum’s first-floor National Art Library.

Now after having dismantled the ARK booktower Rintala Eggertsson Arkitekter are currently looking for someone who might be interested in it.
