knudsen & hindenes: nord for VAD

‘nord’ by knudsen & hindenes



petter knudsen and steinar hindenes of norway based studio, knudsen & hindenes have designed ‘nord’ in collaboration with VAD, a series that includes a solid pine lounge chair and accompanying side table. the pieces, which were most recently on show as part of ‘norway now‘ at the 2011 stockholm furniture fair, use solid pine and felt – materials that are representative of norwegian heritage – in a contemporary context.




the chair consists of two modest wood frames that flank a molded felt seat and backrest. the pine, treated as floorboards traditionally were with caustic soda, water and sand, will beautify and mature with age and use.





‘norway now’, curated by stefan nilsson, creative director at trendgruppen and presented inside the clarion hotel sign is an initiative by the embassy of norway in stockholm, together with innovation norway, clarion hotel sign and trendgruppen, representing contemporary norwegian design.
