Design and Architecture Norway


The goal of the competition is to honour a broad selection of projects in Norwegian design history in order to create greater awareness of and pride in Norwegian design. The competition is not a definitive solution, but we hope it will inspire a healthy debate on the values created by design and how design can contribute in the future.

Peter Opsvik’s Tripp Trapp chair was voted the people’s choice design winner in A-magasinet live on 2 March.

Flytoget (Airport Express) is among the projects nominated as a top 100 design.

“It began with an idea to have a short article on Norwegian design, but quickly grew when we discovered that no one had ever before put together an overview of the entire breadth of Norwegian design.”

Lillian Vambheim

Editor of A-magasinet

Our jury selected what they believe are the best Norwegian designs from the past 100 years. The emphasis is on such criteria as cultural, historic, economic and social value, in addition to the innovation level, form and aesthetics, functionality and user-friendliness.

To represent design in the breadth of history, the projects are assessed in the categories of package design, graphic design, industrial design, furniture design, textile and clothing design, interaction design and service design.
