Lily and Recover

For their first collaboration, Homstvedt & Klock are working with Lillehammer textile manufacturer Gudbrandsdalens Uldvarefabrik on Uld, a collection of cushions and other textile products made from rejected materials and offcuts from fabric production. By combining contrasting colours and textures, the duo have created a range of upcycled soft furnishings that find beauty and purpose in what would otherwise be discarded as waste.

Homstvedt and Klock

Thanks to her upbringing on the rugged western
coast of Norway, multidisciplinary designer Runa Klock is inspired by the natural world and traditional craft practices. Having graduated from Oslo National Academy of the Arts with an MA in design, Klock now works from her studio in central Oslo, producing work that transcends the conventional limits of product design to include food, spaces and events. Underpinned by a love of Scandinavian simplicity, her products tend to be playful and influenced by ideas of storytelling, and many are informed by social
considerations. She frequently collaborates with people in other disciplines, and exhibits her work at furniture fairs and design shows internationally. She is a board member of Klubben and a member of the jury for the Award for Design Excellence in Norway.

Hallgeir Homstvedt runs an independent design studio in Oslo. He graduated from Australia’s Newcastle University with a BA in Industrial Design and went on to work for celebrated studio Norway Says before opening his own in 2009. Since then he has provided furniture, product and industrial design and consultancy services to a wide range of clients, exhibiting widely in London, Tokyo, Oslo, New York and Milan, and creating products for brands such as Lexon, Established & Sons, Muuto and Menu. He has received a number of design awards over the last 10 years.
