Front Oslo Skave Box Oak
Supplier: Fram Oslo
Producer: Kvass at Dovre
Maintenance: Wipe with a damp cloth
Fram Oslo launches Skave, a wooden storage box with architectural decoration, designed by the trio Ytre from Bergen.
The designers have been inspired by traditional building practices from Western Norway. They have found the beauty in a sober architecture with repetitive elements, which should withstand harsh weather and the humid western climate.
They have interpreted this architectural art and highlighted the repetitive motifs in their design Skave.
Ytre has managed to create a storage box that we like to look at every day.
It is a piece of jewelery in itself, while also having a clear function. The design is traditional, but new, and safeguards both cultural heritage and craftsmanship.
The designers are innovative in their interpretation, where historical elements have been simplified to fit into the present.
Skava is made by hand at Kvass in Dovre. Skave was the winner of the design competition Fram Oslo x Håndverk, autumn 2021. Behind the design is the design trio Ytre, which consists of the Master's degree students at KMD, Department of Design, at the University of Bergen, Taran Neckelmann, Ayla Gürsoy and Njål Hatteberg.
Skave, which was showcased at the ICFF design fair in NYC in May, was also the winner of the renowned design competition NYC x Design Awards 2022, in the category for students. The award emphasizes outstanding design, and the jury consists of leading people from the design industry.
