Furniture by KHiB student Lars Fjetland launched in Milan

Lars Beller Fjetland, a BA design student, has experienced what many furniture designers dream of: four of his prototypes have been accepted and put into production. They were launched at the Milan furniture fair on 17 April 2012.

The newly established Italian furniture manufacturer Discipline has accepted Lars Beller Fjetland's design prototypes and put them into production. They were launched as part of their new portfolio at the big international furniture fair in Milan from 17 to 22 April 2012.

Fjetland has designed a stool made from ash with a seat made of cork. Its title is 'Drifted' and it comes in a tall and a low version, with an accompanying bench. He has also designed a series of wooden birds.

Fjetland is described as 'a young and brilliant Norwegian naturalist designer' by the new furniture manufacturer.

The BA programme
Lars Beller Fjetland is now in his third year of the BA Programme in Design specialising in furniture and spatial design/ interior architecture. He is originally from Randaberg, but has studied in Bergen for several years.

In February 2012, he was a part of the group that presented their work at the Stockholm furniture fair, where Fjetland exhibited the coffee table 'Nuki'.

His stool and bench also received coverage in WALLPAPER magazine:
