Architect Paul Lunder founded Fjordfiesta in Molde in 2001, with the aim of reconnecting to Scandinavian design heritage. Fjordfiesta’s first project was to reintroduce the timeless Scandia chair range. Designed by Hans Brattrud in the 1950s, the chairs had been available only through vintage dealers since the mid 1970s. They were slightly adjusted by the designer and put back into production between 2001 and 2010.
With strong ties to the aesthetics of Scandinavian design and 21st-century ethics and environmental issues, Fjordfiesta’s intention is to create furniture that will last for generations to come. As well as working to re-establish the classic designs of yesteryear, Fjordfiesta works with creative contemporary designers such as Anderssen & Voll and Andreas Engesvik. The company’s vision is to introduce new furniture from the finest designers while playing an active role in preserving and developing classic Scandinavian design.
