“By making objects inspired by each designers individual appreciation of their hometown, they have made a collection of stories, which they have brought to Tokyo on a mission to exchange design culture.
Each designer shares a personal story from Oslo, the exhibition shows how the story led to their design. It is through the exhibition framework that the stories behind the product is communicated, and not necessarily the product itself.”
