Inspired by a visit to a thrift store and her grandfathers’ histories in metalwork, Skrin is the result of Andersen’s desire to create a contemporary jewellery box that was a pleasure to hold and which was aesthetically desirable enough to become a treasured possession. Crafted in anodized aluminium by her production partners R-Metall, Skrin has a contemporary and appealing look, a durable finish and a surprisingly lightweight feel.
Industrial designer Marianne Andersen completed her master’s degree at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design in 2013, and honed her practice working with celebrated Norwegian design studio Anderssen & Voll immediately after. Specialising in product design and woodwork, she brings a craft-based approach to her work, blending contemporary technology with traditional production methods. Her products have featured at design shows and fairs in Milan, Oslo, Stockholm, Tokyo, Paris and New York.
