Silje Nesdal Book support Konglo Square

Kr 1.250

The Konglo bookend is made of Norwegian natural stone and has an incredibly beautiful play of colours.

The bookend is shaped from conglomerate, extracted from 450-500 million year old rock. The stone is Norwegian, and comes from a quarry Landøy Brimmen Stone on Værlandet, an island at the far end of Sunnfjord. The bookend also comes in the stone type green breccia - Breksje - which is the darker variety.

The name conglomerate comes from Latin and means mixture. The conglomerate is a sedimentary rock that consists mostly of loose masses such as rounded stones, gravel, sand and clay that are exposed to pressure and high temperature.

Silje Nesdal grew up by the deep fjords of Western Norway, where long traditions in furniture design and woolen textiles are still relevant. Today, Silje works as a furniture designer based in Oslo. She has previous experience as a clothing designer, and works interdisciplinary with all materials in the design of her products.

Traditional craft techniques and modern production used in the design and manufacture of the product have provided ideas for the realization of her product and design. Sustainability and the use of durable materials, as well as subtle design, help to create a product that stands the test of time.

Silje's design language is clean and minimalist, and stays in Finland and Japan in particular have influenced and inspired Silje in her work as a designer and is a consistent part of the design behind her furniture and products.
