Fjord Fiesta + Jenkins & Uhnger

Oct 05, 2017Linn Ellevseth

When we were asked by Fjordfiesta to make our interpretation of accessories for the Krobo bench, we chose to focus on lifestyle and the need to create small still lifes in a home. We wanted to challenge the strict format of the existing series by introducing a different and softer geometric shape. When the circle exceeds the bench's format, it creates an interesting interaction with the bench, while at the same time the object can stand on its own. The aim of the series shown at Norway Designs NÅ has been to create objects that highlight the areas of use for the Krobo bench while also being usable elsewhere in the home.


The series consists of four objects; "Tray" for storing objects or as a potting bowl, "Planter" for plants/herbs or storage, "Planter tall" for plants, pot hides or storage and "Bowl" for storage.

The multifunctional forms can be used together with the Krobo bench or elsewhere in the home. The base is retracted under the containers so that they can hang over the edge of the Krobo bench. It gives them a light expression and at the same time allows them to be stacked. The series introduces new materials to Fjordfiesta's collection as well as focusing on what they do best, namely laminating wood.
