Our news for January 2020 is the «FRI» series along with five new and larger cushions in the Picnic series, all designed by Anderssen & Voll. The studio was founded by the talented duo Torbjørn Anderssen and Espen Voll, two of Norway’s most lauded designers. Both previously founders, and members of the internationally renowned Norway Says design office. Anderssen & Voll works within various fields of design with a focus on domestic objects. The studio has created numerous designs for Røros Tweed in recent years.
The FRI throws are very much inspired by the Norwegian tradition of smaller rectangular table cloths called «løpere». You’ll find variations of these textiles in nearly every mountain cabin all over Norway. In this new interpretation, the typical repetitive rhythm of colour is somewhat dissolved and the colours shift in a randomized, soft and meandering zigzag. The name FRI refers to free time – time to relax and let go of expectations and stress.
“When working on transferring the texture of the ‘Picnic’ throw onto a cushion, we found that the rather coarse texture called for a bigger format 60 cm x 60 cm. A big part of our overall design work is various types of upholstery. The fat «lip» framing the cushion is a detailing we have borrowed from bigger furniture: sofas and lounge chairs” — Anderssen & Voll.
