Event Series, 3 Editions

Norwegian Presence returned in a radically updated format in 2021, tailored to our new digital reality. Having spent months exploring potential new paradigms for Norway’s flagship international design show, organisers Design and Architecture Norway (DOGA) boldly unveiled their new vision for Norwegian Presence as an entirely digital experience.

On 18 February 2021, the first of a series of three half-day online events brought together the best Norwegian designers and manufacturers with leading international design thinkers to explore the ideas, values and aesthetic trends shaping design culture in Norway and beyond.


Each of the events was centered on a distinct theme:

Event #1: Circular Design vs Mass Production

Event #2: From Maker to Museum

Event #3: A New Paradigm in Interior Design?


The overarching focus for the Event Series was on the drive towards a circular-design economy, and the environmental and social sustainability inherent in Nordic design infrastructure.
