Hiort and Østlyngen - Furniture design

Kr 350

Hiort og Østlyngen was one of the most important furniture companies in the 1930s and in the period after the war. They were forward-looking and innovative and for a period produced Finnish Alvor Aalto's laminated furniture under license. The collaboration with Alf Sture led to a number of models, in a special class is the 1036 armchair, which is still being produced.

Arne Hiort's iconic chair 103/80 can be found in Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece Fallingwater. Other designers who put Hiort and Østlyngen on the map were Arne Tjomsland and Svein Ivar Dysthe. Among the furnishing assignments can be mentioned Hotel Continental, Kongeskipet Norge and the Prime Minister's office.

This publication is part of the award-winning book series that pays tribute to Norwegian designers who deserve a rightful place in people's consciousness. Norway has a rich design and craft culture that author Mats Linder has immersed himself in. The books are intended as an introduction to the background history and the designer's selected works.

The book has both Norwegian and English text.

Mats Linder is a writer and author and produces books about Norwegian design at a breakneck pace. He wants to focus on design and handicrafts from the Scandinavian countries - Scandinavian Design, and aims to raise interest and knowledge about design from Scandinavia by publishing biographies of designers, company reviews and reproducing old advertising. He also wants to focus on what is moving within the design scene today and interviews designers and business leaders who have something on their mind.
