Overshadowed by its neighbouring countries for decades, the light has finally come to rest upon Norway and its wealth of creativity and innovation. Differing in some ways from the typical look of Scandinavian design, Norwegian design is more playful, more colourful and more thought provoking than what is usually associated with the region.
Norwegian Presence was the result of the collaboration between Klubben (Norwegian Designers Union), Norwegian Crafts and Norwegian Icons. The three groups came together to showcase the best of what Norwegian handcraft and design – both past and present – have to offer. Featuring 51 different products from 39 designers and artisans and 8 local manufacturers.
