Bird
{Bird from Circus Design}
Steinar Hindenes and Dave Vikøren are Circus Design. They are kind of the grand old men of the Bergen furniture design scene, and they have a lot a really great work to show for. If you read the press release mentioned in this post (link to post 1), you might recognize Dave’s name. I’ve been told that he’s a wonderful resource for the design students at KHiB. Bird is a new collection of chairs, sofas, tables. It’s a module seating system based on 3 different chair modules. Manufactured by Helland Møbler, design by Steinar Hindenes, Lars Tornøe and Atle Tveit.

Tveit&Tornoe_studio
Atle Tveit and Lars Tornøe are the design duo Tveit & Tornøe. You might recognise their names from the description of the Bird chair in my second post. These guys were students at KHiB and have had great success in very sort time. I did an interview with them in early April, and believe me; they have the coolest studio in town. The little sneak peek here doesn’t really do it justice.

Dots 

Above two of Tveit & Tornøe gorgeous designs :: The Dots are giant hooks made of solid oak. The hooks come in sets of five, and make a pleasant addition to any wall. Manufacturer: Muuto. And the Copenhagen Chair is a low resting chair made of 3D-veneer and upholstery, with a steel base. It comes in a variety of veneers and fabrics. Manufacturer: Fora Form.

{KHiB students at Stockholm Furniture Fair}
Thanks to the lovely Irene I (=Astrid) am doing my debut as a guest blogger here at Bloesem. I live in Bergen on the west coast of Norway and in my posts I’m going to introduce you to some very talented furniture and home accessory designers based in Bergen.
KHiB – Bergen National Academy of the Arts – is one of the best acclaimed academies in Norway for furniture and spatial design studies. Every year the students exhibit at Stockholm Furniture Fair (http://webfair2.stofair.se/furniturefair_eng/index.asp?menulink=2&language=EN). The photos above are some of the prototypes that were exhibited this year. Take a look here to see all the 2009 contributions. Here is the press release in English. 

Erlend Bleken: "Half pipe" A spacious “one and a half” chair for comfortable lounging. Wool upholstery. Foam fill. Upholstered with steel base. Anders Berg: "Say-O" Lounge chair made of 3D veneer, solid aluminium and stainless steel. Ingunn Eikeland: "Pytt" is a low lounge table. The idea was to visualize a raindrop as it breaches the surface of a puddle. Halvor Eide: "Spin" Lounge chair in laminated maple and wool upholstery aiming to simplify the occasional mingling in an open social landscape. {All photos are taken by Bjarte Bjørkum}
