The new Norwegian furniture company Eikund is re-launching Norwegian furniture classics that will most definitely impress. With the presentation of Veng, designed by Torbjørn Bekken in 1960, Eikund is entering a chapter in the Norwegian design history that has been hidden for too long.Some may have heard of designers like Arne Korsmo and Grete Prytz Kittelsen, but the scope of creativity blooming in this country around the mid-twentieth century is for many an unknown territory. Pulled out into the spotlight again, there is no doubt that these objects fit perfectly into contemporary interiors of today, both in public and private sector.
Krysset is a Norwegian design icon with a distinguished cross- legged expression. Fredrik A. Kayser graduated from National Academy of Craft and Art Industry in 1945. He designed Krysset while being employed at Rastad & Relling Tegnekontor between 1952-56. The crossed legs shape the overall structure of the chair with darker wooden nails in the joints enhancing the crafted beauty. The backrest is stretched out like a sail by a piece of leather sewn to the frame.
