"100% Norway 2012" will mark its ninth year as part of the London Design Festival by relocating to a new design district, Tent in East London. The curated exhibition at Dray Walk Gallery showcases works of both established and up-and-coming Norwegian designers, as well as a number of the country's leading manufacturers.
The exhibition is curated by Henrietta Thompson, Wallpaper's Editor-at-Large and Benedicte Sunde from the Norwegian Design Council. Commenting on this year's exhibition, Henrietta Thompson says, "Once again, 100% Norway will showcase excellence and innovation with an engaging and refreshing line-up of Norwegian designers. This exhibition acts as a pivotal point in many designers' careers, opening doors to the British design market, whilst simultaneously building awareness internationally."
In their new location at Dray Walk Gallery,
"100% Norway" presents an exhibition space designed by Amy Hunting
and Oscar Narud which draws on a diverse range of traditional
Norwegian building techniques, whilst a strong emphasis on graphics
provides a contemporary twist.
A number of emerging Norwegian designers will make their London debut at this year's 100% Norway.
"100% Norway allows us to recognize the best design talent in Norway" says curator, Benedicte Sunde. "We are thrilled to present beautiful and forward thinking designs in a new, fully curated exhibition space at Tent, which will be sure to surprise and amaze visitors this September."
