Brought up on Norway’s rugged western coast, Runa Klock makes products that are often inspired by nature, and influenced by a strong interest in materials and crafts. She holds an MA in design from Oslo National Academy of the Arts, and currently operates from her studio in central Oslo. Runa’s work is characterised by an openness to cooperate with people in a variety of disciplines; her practice extends beyond product design to encompass food, spaces and events. Playful and influenced by storytelling, several of her projects also have a strong social profile.
For her fourth appearance at 100% Norway, Runa presents Dual Stool, an eco-friendly lacquered steel seat designed to allow both tall and shorter people to sit comfortably, indoors or out. The clean-lined, simple structure is divided in two sections that mirror one another, but create footrests at different heights on each side. The stool includes an optional cushion upholstered in Kvadrat’s new two-tone woollen textile, Rime.
