Aluminium for sustainable design and production

One of the main sponsors of Norwegian Presence 2021, leading aluminium producer Hydro has worked with several Norwegian designers to explore low-carbon aluminium as a sustainable design material in furniture and interior design. These collaborations have resulted in four products. 

Stick is a coffee table designed by Dybwad&Wyller with a lightweight frame made with 75% post-consumer recycled aluminium. Sofie&Tiange have designed the ambient aluminium floor lamp Leaf and the storage module Hylla, made from aluminium and ash wood. Aluminium & Stone by Ali Gallefoss is an experimental piece inspired by nature and fairy-tales that fuses Hydro’s aluminium with natural stone from Lundhs.

Hydro is a leading Norwegian energy and aluminium company with operations worldwide. It provides aluminium in numerous forms, from raw material to rolled sheets and custom extrusion design and manufacturing. Aluminium can be recycled endlessly without losing its properties – a process which requires only 5% of the energy used in primary production. As a material, aluminium is light, strong, flexible and extremely durable, and can fit any design to create products that last for generations. Hydro produces more than 70% of its aluminium using renewable energy sources such as hydropower, making it among the world's greenest aluminium.
