Graphic design: Cathleen Røddig Rønning
I love this poster that shows Norwegian design from the modern era of 1940–1975. Quite easily I spot my Ingmar Relling chair Siesta to the right, and to the left my childrens’s beloved Tripp Trapp chair from their childhood. It was designed by Peter Opsvik in 1972 and has the most intelligent design because it grows with the child, providing a comfortable, ergonomic seat at any age.
This exibition “Norway Icons” from 2013 -14 was shown in Oslo, Tokyo and New York. It was created to raise awareness of Norwegian Design History both nationally and internationally. It was Norwegian’s Icons contribution to mid-century Scandinavian design with its fine and rare decorative arts and furniture.
It was curated by Fuglen; Coffee-Coctails-Vintage design located in Oslo and Tokyo, and Blomqvist; Norway’s oldest, largest and most renowned distributor of art and antiques.
