Norway Says no more

If you know just a little bit about Norwegian design, I'm sure you have heard the name Norway Says. Norway Says is the design studio that has been named the most successful in Norway ever, and they have had the honour of putting Norwegian design on the world map. So, it's sad to read the news that the trio - Andreas Engesvik, Espen Voll and Torbjørn Anderssen - are now finishing their fruitful collaboration.

Here are a few news stories about this (in Norwegian):
Prisbelønnet norsk designtrio oppløses (read the comments below the article too) / Designstjerne slukkes

I have mentioned Norway Says a couple of times before; here and here. I've also done a mini interview with them for an article about Scandinavian design in NO magazine.

  4. Jeg blir så fasinert over folk som får det til!! (Men dumt at de gir seg da....) Det samme med Moods of Norway! Jeg blir så fasinert!!! De skal ikke legge opp da. Men det er så utrolig kuult å lese og la seg inspirere over folk fra lille Norge som får det til!

    Ha en fin dag!
    Hilsen Liv
