The new Norwegian furniture company Eikund is re-launching Norwegian furniture classics that will most definitely impress. The scope of creativity blooming in Norway around the mid-twentieth century is unknown territory for many. Pulled into the spotlight again, there is no doubt that these objects fit perfectly into contemporary interiors of today, both in public and private sector.
For Eikund this has been a real treasure hunt. Over a one year period they have crawled into attics, rummaged private and public archives, and sought out expertise inland and abroad to get the original drawings and information about each product. Norwegian designers from this period were clearly influenced by the modernistic trends rushing through Europe and joined the common mission to create simple and functional furniture for the masses. Like the pioneers from neighbouring countries, such as Hans J. Wegner and Alvar Aalto, they never lost sight of the refined and cultivated aesthetics that characterize many of these pieces today, and have made them into collector items at auction houses worldwide.
