Scoop is a family of three multi-purpose wooden bowls in ash and oak, featuring scoop-like depressions that can be used to store or display small objects. Starting with a clean rectangular block, Tørnoe has used rounded tools of different sizes to scrape out the space – a process akin to scooping ice cream from a tub.
Born in Düsseldorf to Norwegian parents, Lars Tørnoe is now based in Stavanger, where he runs his furniture and product design studio. Graduating from the University of Bergen with a BA and MA in design in 2006, Tornøe has gone on to work with clients across Europe, designing furniture and products for the likes of Vestre, Muuto, Fora Form and New Works. His designs have been featured in exhibitions across the world, from Stockholm to Seoul, and he has received a number of awards, including the Award for Design Excellence from the Norwegian Design Council, the coveted Red Dot and ‘Designer of the Year’ and ‘Lamp of the Year’ titles from Bo Bedre magazine.
