TENT and Norwegian Prototypes, LDF 2010

TENT and TENT Digital confirmed itself as the most diverse event of the festival. From Alex Randall’s taxidermy rat lamp to Jung Myung Taek’s sprung metal furniture, many of this year’s exhibitors have combined traditional techniques with new technologies.

Following on from last year’s success, Norwegian Prototypes returns with a larger group of young and established Norwegian designers. This year’s exhibition showcased fresh and unseen prototypes from 14 Norwegian designers, self-initiated through the determination of Kim Thome and Amy Hunting. This year the participants were all asked to reflect on the size 55 x 40 x 23, a standard hand luggage size when travelling with budget airlines. The exhibition presented an interesting and quirky range of different solutions and approaches.
