Norwegian design - creating excellence

Design has historically been a part of everyday Norwegian life, people that create items of visual beauty balanced with healthy measures of functionality, sustainability and a good old-fashioned durability. This is innovative design featuring genuine advantages for the user – and this is the mark of Norwegian designers. Below you will find a selection of articles within Norwegian design.

Creating excellence
Norwegians have traditionally seen design as being an integral part of their daily life, finding solutions, and making things work better – in a more aesthetic and functional way. This, combined with a long-standing curiosity of the world around them has led the way to a strong design infrastructure, from schools and universities to the organizations that lead the way in making Norwegian design a important focal point both in Norway and abroad.

 

An international perspective
Henrietta Thompson is based in London, a noted design expert and curator of the 100% Norway Exhibition for the past several years. Norway Exports had the opportunity to have a few words with her concerning Norwegian design.

The changing face of norway – Architecture today
One of the leading architectural historians of the last hundred years, Dr. Spiro Kostof, once remarked that “architecture is a social act and the material theatre of human activity.” The huge success and soaring reputation of Norwegian architects around the globe at the beginning of a new century owes no small thanks to a focus on those two factors. The biggest projects of today, such as the development of the Bjørvika Harbour in Oslo, have been conducted with an eye both to society and democracy, and even to theatre – or perhaps opera – whilst other local and international projects by architects such as Jensen and Skodvin have focused on nature’s own theatre, as illustrated by their designs for the Gudbrandsjuvet waterfall viewing platform and the Juvet Landscape Hotel, deep into the woods.
