Gullfjæren Interior Design Awards

Gullfjæren is the interior event of the year, celebrating and honoring Norway's most important influencers in interior design at Instagram. This is not just an award ceremony but an exciting and contentious event for anyone with an interest and passion for interior.

The event was hosted by one of Norway's finest five-star hotels - Continental hotel in the heart of Oslo.

 

Muuto Product Training

Muuto is rooted in the Scandinavian design tradition characterized by enduring aesthetics, functionality, craftsmanship and an honest expression.

By expanding this heritage with forward-looking materials, techniques and bold creative thinking, our ambition is to deliver new perspectives on Scandinavian design.

In fact our name, Muuto, comes from muutos, meaning new perspective in Finnish. We handpick leading contemporary designers who are strong interpreters of our philosophy and combine their talents with the passionate Muuto creative team.

You will know our design because it has muutos: objects made sublime through new perspectives, enjoyed across the world, representing the best of Scandinavian design today.

Designers Saturday

This is Designer's Saturday 2017


The Designers Saturday idea was dreamt up by enthusiastic industry insiders who brought the concept over from New York in 1986. Since then, the event has been arranged every other year. Designer's Saturday Oslo is the only national exhibition in Norway, dedicated to furniture, textiles, lighting, flooring and other interior and design related products aimed at both industry professionals and the wider design aware public. A free bus service is available to attendees; simply jump on and off the bus where you want. 190 cutting edge Norwegian, Scandinavian and international exhibitors will display their latest offerings at 36 locations across Oslo city centre.

Designers Saturday Oslo is not a run-of-the-mill event hosted in some national exhibition Centre rather an important arena for professional practitioners wishing to keep updated and informed on the latest trends, developments and products. Furniture intended for public spaces is increasingly used in private homes, which is why the general public has been invited to take part in Designers Saturday over the last years, we even gave the event its own label: Public Sunday.

House Warming Ferm Living

Autumn/Winter 2017

It’s that certain scent, a familiar atmosphere, walls that know your name. So much more than just a place, The Home is where we feel at ease. It's the space that lets us grow into who we wish to become. It's where we are who we are.

Ferm Living Autumn/Winter 2017 collection brings a touch of Nordic decadence to The Home. By merging the essence of a graphic Nordic design identity with an allure of understated sophistication they have created a vibrant and bold collection in which the richness of materials, volume and textures finds its balance among clean shapes and soft lines. The Unfold Room Divider, evoking a feeling of past decadent times has a luxurious feel, while it may also provide the functionality of dividing and defining a modest space. The Pouf series featuring a sophisticated volume, upholstered in exclusive Febrik velour, creates an engaging dynamic and dualism giving the collection a strong and versatile expression.

Graphical elements and their strong take on tonal colours are an essential part of Ferm Living design-driven collections. For AW17 they playfully have reinterpreted the classic stripes into wallpapers and rich textiles.

Honouring traditional craftsmanship our Sekki unglazed stoneware series offers a tactility, depth and honest feel. With a sharp eye for details, they have designed a collection of brass-mounted Hooks & Knobs with semi-precious stones that add the final touch to your home.

Geometrical shapes come to life and let time stand still in our range of glass objects. Subtle shades of coloured glass emphasize the form and function of the Still Teapot.
Mouth-blown Opal Shades in the Collect Lighting Series add a refined tonal light to THE HOME, while the new Bubble Glass series playfully combines transparency and heavy geometric shapes.

On par with their lush, decadent atmosphere, they have created new must-have designs for their Salon Cushions, which now offer an even larger selection of eclectic textiles in The Home collection - Designed to steal your heart.
