Over the course of the five days, 26 of Norway’s brightest stars of design and craft present an array of products, projects and prototypes, spanning furniture, ceramics, lighting, textiles and interior accessories. Structure invited participants to respond to the themes ‘structure or ‘trace’ – whether in terms of a mark of a prior existence, a small amount, a path, or an act of tracking. The result is a broad spectrum of unique interpretations, including innovative material applications; structural experiments and imaginative aesthetic effects.
Curated by Norway’s renowned interior stylists Kråkvik & D’Orazio and editor-in-chief of Swedish design magazine Residence Hanna Nova Beatrice, Structure aims to bring together the best of contemporary Norwegian creativity, and foster ground-breaking collaborations and manufacturing partnerships, in a single state-of-the-nation exhibition that exists at the intersection of design, craft and art.
Structure is an exhibition by Klubben, Norwegian Crafts and Jotun, in collaboration with the Norwegian Centre for Design and Architecture, and is supported by Norwegian stone exporter Lundhs, Oslo Design Fair, design publication Bo Bedre and the cultural division of the Royal Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
