This project promotes Norwegian furniture, products and interior design abroad. Norwegian Design is based upon the best of Scandinavian traditions, focusing on purity, functionality, ergonomics and environmental consciousness. While the designs of Denmark, Finland and Sweden have come to dominate the global perception of 'Scandinavian' design, Norwegian designers are now claiming their rightful place within that rich design tradition. Our designers and manufacturers are gaining international acclaim for their emphasis on innovation, as well as their deep commitment to creating solutions for social needs. Norway's furniture industry was established on the country's remote west coast, far away from industrial and consumer markets. This intimate connection to the natural landscape of mountains and fjords has served as an inspiration to Norwegian designers who, since the 1930's, have been working alongside manufacturers to create beautiful and functional furniture and interior products.
