DESCRIPTION

In the hallway or under a window or as a second sofa with seating facing every which way, the bench option from the Oslo series might well be an indispensable piece of any room puzzle. A robust steel frame is concealed in its visual lightness, a feature of the Oslo series, which includes a sofa, chair and pouf. The spare and luxe attitude envisioned by Oslo-based designers Torbjørn Andersen and Espen Voll for the seating collection named after their modern hometown.

Cofounders of the seminal Norway Says, Torbjørn and Espen have continued to break ground under their eponymous studio, Anderssen & Voll, extending the "Nordic touch" through collaborators such as Muuto, the Danish house producing the Oslo Collection.

ABOUT THE BRAND: MUUTO

MUUTO

”We give the designers the freedom to create new designs,” says Muuto co-founder Peter Bonnén. Inspired by the Finnish word “muutos” that alludes to having a new perspective, the company aspires to update Scandinavian tradition for a new generation. By giving free reign to the brightest design talent in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark, there’s the breathing room to conjure a new take on a chair, vase or a lamp, Peter says. “The road to success for modern Scandinavian design lies in a strong belief in the best designers of our time.”

Peter and co-founder Kristian Byrge, who originally trained in economics and management respectively, might not have seemed destined to helm a new-influencer design firm. But their passion for all things design and and the distinctive style they dub “New Nordic” has brought global acclaim in just a few short years. “This gives the Muuto designs great diversity and character and further links them to the Nordic heritage—a heritage Muuto is proud of and that all the designers carry with them as part of their professional luggage”, says Kristian.

 

ABOUT THE DESIGNER: ANDERSSEN & VOLL

ANDERSSEN & VOLL

"A good product builds and expands on tradition but at the same time, it breaks with tradition," say Anderssen & Voll, the Oslo-based design team that is consistently breaking new ground in the international design world. After 10 years of collaboration at the Norway Says design company which they cofounded, Torbjørn Andersen (born 1976) and Espen Voll (born 1965) began their eponymous firm in 2009 and have received repeated recognition for the wide range of their work in furniture, textiles, electronics, lighting and home accessories. Accolades include Norwegian and Scandinavian designers of the year, Wallpaper Award, IF Award and the Torsten and Wanja Söderberg Prize.

The studio's client list includes leading European names Muuto, Wrong for Hay, Foscarini, Kvadrat, Erik Jørgensen and Filip Technologies. However they also value collaborations closer to home, in the finest Norwegian tradition with Jøtul, Gudbrandsdalens Uldvarefabrik, Fjord Fiesta, Røros Tweed and LK Hjelle. "Change and elements of surprise stimulates thought and reflection–even for people who are not very interested in design and even if the change is not radical," they say. "That tiny second of reflection is the window of opportunity where we can communicate with the users and that is what we are looking for."
