We have worked with a broad range of commercial players, cultural institutions and public organizations across Norway:

We collaborate with people who believe in investing in design towards a sustainable future. As designers we have a responsibility to seek solutions that are better for both people and the planet, and we are passionate about using our craft to create projects that enable positive change.
Our self-initiated projects are our contribution to the diverse and thriving local community here on the western coast of Norway. The projects range from exhibitions and storytelling to environmental activities and publications. Heimfolk and #blåmyradugnad are two of our projects aimed at building local connections and reducing marine waste on our shores. Our designlab includes a concept store showcasing artists, designers and content creators inspired by the sea. This is also where we organize our design and art workshops aimed at inspiring future generations of artists and designers.
