one of my highlights from last week’s london design festival was the 100% norway exhibition at tent london. i was lucky enough to be given a guided tour of the exhibit by show curator henrietta thompson, editor-at-large at wallpaper* magazine, whose infectious enthusiasm for all the products of display really rubbed off!

it was wonderful to be introduced to so many emerging norwegian designers – and meet many of them in person – and i left the show buzzing with the creativity of this engaging and refreshing line-up. i found myself drawn to the sleek industrial lines of strek collective’s wandering lines modular system of trestle tables, benches and racks (1), as well as the understated floating grandeur of knudsen berg hindenes’ plank sofa (3). we also all swooned over the adorableness of lars beller fjetland’s re-turned wooden birds (7), which have been crafted from leftover wood, with each possessing their own unique quirky characteristics.

“100% norway allows us to recognize the best design talent in norway” said curator benedicte sunde, “[and] we are thrilled to present beautiful and forward thinking designs in a new, fully curated exhibition space at tent, which will be sure to surprise and amaze visitors this september” – it certainly did just that!
