I participated at the "KHiB with friends" exhibition at the London Design Festival 2013, showing both a redesigned footstool (top), and the Terra pouf that I have designed for Soft Line, Denmark. We chose bright yellow for the exhibition! Here with Queen Sonja of Norway, guided by Professor Dave Vikøren and Petter Bergerud (right), from The Norwegian Academy of Art and Design, Bergen.
The ground floor of the Rasmus Meyer collection is a reproduction of his house in Krybbebakken, Bergen. This floor houses classical Norwegian paintings and also many of Rasmus Meyers possessions. The rooms are organized as his home originally was. One of the rooms, a former bedroom, has been converted to a museum shop and entrance desk.
I had the pleasure of working with KODE, The Rasmus Meyer Collection, this year. The museum was renovated fall 2012 and spring 2013. I designed the new museum shop, chose colors, floor covering, general lighting and furniture; assisting the museum in achieving the look and feel they sought. I also designed the new layout and display cabinets for the museums collection of Edward Munch drawings and graphic art.


During the quiet summer months, Stjernesalen at the student quarters in Bergen had a real makeover. I collaborated with interior architect Linda Szücs on this project, and we are really pleased with the outcome! The students needed a cool, laidback space functioning as a cafè in daytime and a bar in the evening. The furniture needed to be really sturdy and durable, and easy to keep. The emphasis was on a dark colour scheme and good quality materials, such as leather and oak. The walls and celing have a dark mud colour. In order to make the place look young and fresh, we strived to use clean geometric lines, in combination with fun and cool scandinavian conteporary furniture.
TERRA. The Terra modules have a grounded and down toearth expression. The idea was to create a seating system with superb comfort and flexibility. I also wanted to make pillow like seating without an internal framework. The informal character and flexibility encourages a mix and match of fabrics, texturs and colour. TORTA is a braided pouf. It is braided like a basket, turned upside down. I wanted to implement this ancient technique in my contemporary pieces. This demonstrates my love for craftmanship. The tactile surface and the texture makes it an ideal supplement to a lounge setting.
