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.
Veng has a strong personality and is one of the most expressive chairs Torbjørn Bekken designed. Bekken graduated from the National Academy of Craft and Art Industry in 1946. He designed the chair while working for the innovative interior design company Rastad & Relling Tegnekontor. With the stunning sculptural and chief-looking appearance the forgotten Norwegian icon is finally coming back to life.
