Executive chef and restaurateur Thorsten Schmidt of Barr has this to say about the new cutlery at the restaurant: – The new cutlery optimizes the tactile and physical experience of dining at Barr. It is not merely defined by aesthetics or functionality; the cutlery actually enhances the enjoyment of the food and thus elevates the eating experience itself. When you lift your spoon or fork, the sturdy weight of the cutlery gives you a stronger sensory experience in relation to the food. The cutlery is available for sale online at tablenoir.com and in selected stores across Scandinavia. 📷 @callehuth

We are excited to launch a custom-made cutlery set for restaurant Barr in Copenhagen. The cutlery set is designed in close partnership with our client @tablenoir and executive chef Thorsten Schmidt of Barr, with the aim of further enhancing the restaurant experience. The bespoke cutlery has a stonewashed surface which gives it an approachable, sturdy feel, adding contrast and novelty to the typical fine dining experience. This contributes to a unique expression, which is in line with Barr’s food philosophy; an ideology where every ingredient and its processing is carefully selected to create new and original dining experiences. @barrcph 📷 @schonnemann @callehuth

As a part of the design of the Holmen Industrial Area we worked closely with the client on developing a functional yet unique identity system for the site, to be applied on everything from business cards and printed materials to signage and window foils. The design system is inspired by the area’s main asset — fish, and is used throughout the site in various forms. An interpretation of fish bone is used as arrows for navigation, and fish scale patterns are used as a shield from the sun in the large windows and on printed identity elements. 📷 @spcitrone @studiofotografica at Sortlandssundet

Following yesterday’s presentation of Holmen Industrial Area, we received some stunning photos of the buildings with the Northern Lights in the background. Simply magical! Thank you @bjorneneide and Øksnes Entreprenør AS. at Sortlandssundet

Another look inside @calgarylibrary: the open atrium extends over 85 feet to a view of the sky through the oculus. Wood slats line the perimeter of the space, shaped in plan like a pointed ellipse, allowing people to quickly grasp the organizational logic of the library. 📸: @michaelgrimmphoto, looking north from level 2 #snohetta #newcentrallibrary #calgarylibrary #NCL #atrium at Calgary Central Library

We’re excited to see that the new Norwegian banknotes are beginning to come into circulation! The new banknote design is based on design proposals from Snøhetta on the one side and from @metric_design /Terje Tønnesen on the other. Snøhetta’s design proposal explores the notion of the beauty of boundaries of the characteristic Norwegian coastline – the boundaries between sea and land, between land and air and between air and sea. By linking the coastline metaphor with a graphical expression inspired by ancient mosaic artefacts of colored glass or stone, the designers have translated this analogue art form into the mosaics of our time: the pixels. In this sense, the design represents boundaries as a travel in time: a travel between old and new, past and present. The 50, 100, 200 and 500 notes are out now, and the final 1000 kroner note will be released in the end of 2019. @norgesbank

This week we celebrated the opening of the Swarovski Manufaktur in Wattens, Austria – an innovative crystal atelier of the 21st Century. Developed for the Tyrolean crystal manufacturer, the Swarovski Manufaktur provides Swarovski new opportunities to work together with customers. This hybrid building merges facilities for design, product development and production and is perfectly suited for creative co-creation and rapid prototyping. During the opening event, Founding Partner of Snøhetta, Kjetil Trædal Thorsen, complimented Markus Langes-Swarovski on his visions, and for making this innovative and inclusive fabrication facility possible. @swarovskiforprofessionals at Wattens, Innsbruck, Austria
