Special guest :: Astrid from Hei Astrid

{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}
