A new exhibition feature charting the journey from raw material to finished product

A respect for nature runs deep into Norwegian culture and helps shape the national design identity – a Norwegian product wears the materials of its making openly and with pride. This honesty is made explicit in Norwegian Presence’s Material Lab, a new exhibition feature charting the journey from raw material to finished product.

In the Material Lab, visitors are invited to touch and feel various textures and surfaces –from Norway’s national stone larvikite to aluminium, wool and samples of colours. By telling the remarkable stories behind the building blocks of Norwegian design, the lab showcases raw material’s boundless potential for the future.
