In order to show a true cross-section of Norwegian design, Makovsky traveled across Norway, visiting top design schools and studios as well as international design fairs to seek out under-the-radar talent.
The designers in the exhibition are definite rising stars in the Norwegian design world. Some are recent graduates while others are starting to garner international attention. All of the prototypes are making their North American debut. While the exhibit features prototypes, some of the designs on display have recently gone into limited production with a manufacturing partner, a testament to the growing strength of the Norwegian design scene.
A selection of classic mid-century modern Norwegian pieces that have recently been put back into production are exhibited alongside the prototypes, bringing the past, present and future of Norwegian design and manufacturing together.
These pieces have been curated by the creative team behind Oslo-based Fuglen, who have also designed the booth.
