Norwegian Designers Mesmerizing Kinetic Installation for Lundin Norway


“Breaking The Surface” is a collaboration between ctrl+N, Scandinavian Design Group, Kontur, Abida, and Intek for Lundin Norway. The installation is essentially a grid of plastic cyclinders that move up into the ceiling as people walk underneath it. The wave-like motions can be experienced from below, on the first floor, but also from above, on the second floor. Love to see this in person, watch the videos below.

Norway’s Beautiful New Kroner Banknotes Designed by Architecture Firm Snøhetta

snohetta-norway-money01Architecture firm Snøhetta’s design submission.

Norway’s currency just got a beautiful makeover courtesy of Norwegian architecture firm Snøhetta and Norwegian graphic design firm The Metric System. The images you see here are Snøhetta’s designs but the final banknotes feature The Metric System’s designs on the reverse side. Norges Bank asked several firms to submit designs, all of which you can see here.

*Edit – Thanks to Helene Brox for the heads up about all the different designs (the version with the kids’ drawings is her favourite and maybe mine too now).

Snøhetta is the architecture firm currently working on the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art expansion, and the designs they submitted are images of Norway’s coast pixelated according to the Beaufort wind scale.

See more of Snøhetta’s designs as well as the final design below.
