In 1960 Torbjørn Afdal designed the multi-purpose bench Krobo. The bench has become an instant classic in Norway, thanks to its flexibility and the many possible uses. Now Fjordfiesta relaunched Krobo, thanks to a series of accessories, boxes, drawers and cushions designed by the duo Anderssen & Voll.
With the ambition to manage, develop and reconnect to the Scandinavian design heritage, architect Paul Lunder founded Fjordfiesta in 2001. With strong ties to the aesthetics of Scandinavian design culture and 21st century values regarding ethic and environmental issues, Fjordfiesta’s intention is to create furniture that will last for generations to come.
Working with designers from different eras reflects Fjordfiesta’s belief in Scandinavian design; both classic and contemporary. Finding the essence of now is equally important to us as recognizing the legacy of the past and we are proud to be working with the creative minds behind design group «Norway Says», known today as «Anderssen & Voll» and «Andreas Engesvik, Oslo».
