A COLOUR COMPOSITION, NEW NORWEGIAN DESIGN

160217_1

Jeg har gledet meg til å vise dere bilder fra utstillingen A COLOUR COMPOSITION, New Norwegian Design som ble vist på den norske ambassaden i Stockholm forrige uke. Både ambassaden, tegnet av arkitekt Knut Knutsen tidlig på 50-tallet og utstillingen kuratert av Kråkvik & D´Orazio var et imponerende syn på åpningskvelden – og bildene er tatt av fotograf Lars Petter Pettersen før gjestene inntok ambassaden. Utstillingen viser det beste av norsk design og kunsthåndverk i dag og ble holdt av SMI (Samarbeidsrådet for møbel og interiør), et nettverk av designere, produsenter, organisasjoner og utdanningsinstitutt som jobber for å styrke norsk møbel- og designindustri.

The exhibition A COLOUR COMPOSITION, New Norwegian Design was shown at the Norwegian Embassy in Stockholm last week – an exhibition that shows the best of new Norwegian design and crafts today. The Norwegian Embassy in Stockholm is one of architect Knut Knutsen´s most iconic buildings, and its original features from the early fifties has been well preserved. The unique rooms in the embassy sat the framework for the special exhibition I was so lucky to see last week. Curated by Norwegian stylist duo Kråkvik & D´Orazio.

En imponerende utstilling norsk design i rammene på den flotte ambassaden i Stockholm, og som Jannicke og Allesandro sier; Som arbeidet til arkitekt Knut Knutsen har vist oss har norsk design sine røtter – men det er kanskje akkurat nå vi er vitner til begynnelsen på en ny norsk design æra.

Stylists Jannicke Kråkvik and Allesandro D´Orazio: As the work of Knut Knutsen has shown us, Norwegian design has its roots, but it just might be right now we are witnessing the dawn of a new Norwegian design era.
