“Norway has always been a nation of makers. Wool and wood, stone and steel – the country is blessed with an abundance of raw materials of creation, while Norwegian culture has evolved in the spirit of community and collaboration. As a result, modern Norway is a place of design without ego, where boundaries are pushed and possibilities explored with a shared spirit of curiosity, in the hope of creating something beautiful, functional and lasting.” – Northern.
Norwegian Crafts plays a similar role for the nation’s craft artists, fostering a creative network of makers in which new ideas and approaches can blossom and thrive. Meanwhile, from its base in Oslo, Design and Architecture Norway (DOGA), explores and promotes the ways in which architecture and design can be harnessed to the benefit of society as a whole.
Northern took their Nordic spirit one step further into the world, launching their new lifestyle brand and collection in Milan during Salone del Mobile. They proudly took part of the Norwegian Presence exhibition, presenting the best of Norwegian contemporary design, crafts and high-quality manufacturers.
