The Norwegian Presence modern furniture exhibition will be hosted by three independent and government-funded creative collectives. The event will host contemporary and design-forward pieces that highlight emerging Norwegian talent. The theme of the event explores "the making of Norway" with a heavy emphasis on collaborative works in the industry. The selected designers have a robust background and reputation in "blending ancient making traditions with new technologies."
The modern furniture exhibition is split into three main areas— craft/sculpture, design and manufacture. The event will not only look into the interrelations and togetherness of "sharing and lifting each other up to make something happen," but it will also showcase the innovative mindset of the country through a small design-driven and tech-infused range of furniture, installations, lighting and textiles.
