Design by nature
Staffan Bengtsson, 2011
In the spring of 2011, the architectural and interior design firm Snøhetta was hailed the world’s most innovative architectural office by the American magazine Fast Company. Interest in Norwegian architects and designers continues to grow.
Exhibition projects such as 100% Norway in London have secured Norway the reputation of being a design nation to watch out for. In this book – a sequel to Norway Calling (2008) - Staffan Bengtsson takes a look at the Norwegian design world’s recent, altered relationship to landscape and nature. Today, mountains and fjords not only serve as magnificent visual backdrops but are also part of a design process that perhaps, ultimately, deals with the future of Mankind on this planet.
The book is in English.
