Design exhibition: Tingenes Tilstand

It´s been quiet here lately, because I have some  projects that keeps me really busy. Most importantly; together with Sverre and Victoria I´m arranging a design exhibition in Oslo called “Tingenes Tilstand” (The State of Things).

More than six months ago we invited a group of  talented and exciting product and furniture designers to develop brand new work based on a given design brief. I´m proud to say that in my opinion the participants really are among the best in Norway! In two weeks we open, Thursday August 30th – September 2, at Galleri TM51 in Oslo.

For those of you who can´t make it to Oslo, we will launch a website where we will publish all the work, the same day as the exhibition opens. Unfortunately I can not reveal the work just yet, but I promise I will in a few weeks!

Paola coats

The water-repellent coats from Norwegian designer Paola are so great! They come in six different models; my favorites are the ones printed with the traditional Norwegian “Marius” knitting pattern. I love that the fabric doesn’t feel like ordinary rain coats, it feels more like a regular light-weight jacket that can be worn in any kinds of weather.

Inside every garment there is a printed Paola calendar to highlight important issues, initiatives and projects, like World Cancer Day, Earth Hour and World Laughter Day.
