Norway designers Noidoi

Norway designers Noidoi – Kapp candleholders "We aim to increase the longevity of objects by inspiring a sense of personal attachment in the user." Noidoi was founded in 2013 by Kathrine Lønstad and Cosmin Cioroiu, who met while studying at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. Working across a broad spectrum of product design, there is emphasis on usability, materiality and craftsmanship. Kapp is a series of sculptural candleholders made from slipcast stoneware. It pays tribute to the history of their studio's location opposite a milk factory dating back to 1800 with the use of three colours representing different elements of milk production. 33

Norway designers Petter Skogstad – RIG furniture "I finish the pieces in RIG with a sand-textured matt coating normally used for large building facades for a sculptural effect." Oslo-based product designer Petter Skogstad graduated from Akershus University College with an MA in product design in 2010, and has spent nine years at Anderssen&Voll as senior product designer. Skogstad applies a practical problem-solving approach to design, generally focused on the areas of furniture, lighting, tableware and domestic objects, which he develops for brands including Muuto, Hem and Established & Sons. RIG comprises only tubing and flat discs in powdercoated steel, and is a family of furniture objects that are not designed for any specific seating situation but possess a strong sculptural character. 34
