On 28-31 January 100% Norway with Norwegian Icons is showcased on Oslo Design Fair, Norway’s largest trade fair and the most important meeting place for the design and interior decor sector. Oslo Design Fair aim to develop Oslo and the surrounding region to a vibrant design destination, with open showrooms, shops, galleries, product launches and social events.
On 24–27 September, the most compelling national showcase on the design calendar returns for the London Design Festival. Now in its 12th year, 100% Norway has traditionally brought the very best of contemporary Norwegian furniture, interior and product design to an audience of professionals, design connoisseurs and the general public.
This year, the line-up is set to be stronger than ever, with 33 of the country’s most talented designers presenting their products and prototypes at the exhibition, which once again forms part of Tent London – the international design event at the Old Truman Brewery in East London.
A collaboration between The Norwegian Centre for Design and Architecture (DOGA), the Royal Norwegian Embassy in London, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Innovation Norway, in partnership with Norwegian Icons, 100% Norway 2015 is focused not only on Norwegian designers, but on the complete process of design and production. Every product exhibited this year is ‘100% Norwegian’, i.e. both designed and manufactured within Norway’s borders.
Curated by Benedicte Sunde of DOGA and Peppe Trulsen of Norwegian Icons, 100% Norway will feature prototypes from the selected designers alongside classic and contemporary products from Norwegian interior and furniture products, as well as a display of material applications from Norwegian manufacturers.
