CARRYING ON A LEGACY
With the ambition to manage, develop and reconnect to the Scandinavian design heritage, architect Paul Lunder founded Fjordfiesta in 2001. With strong ties to the aesthetics of Scandinavian design culture and 21st century values regarding ethic and environmental issues, Fjordfiesta's intention is to create furniture that will last for generations to come.
A MISSION ACCOMPLISHED
Our first mission was to reintroduce the timeless «Scandia» range of chairs, designed by Hans Brattrud in the 1950's. The chairs, that had been available through vintage dealers only since the mid 70's, were slightly trimmed by the designer and put into production between 2001 and 2010. This meant our first goal was met. To celebrate we released the «Scandia Prince Rosewood» special edition, signed and numbered by Hans Brattrud.
WITHOUT HISTORY WE CAN'T EVOLVE,
WITHOUT EVOLVEMENT THERE WILL BE NO HISTORY
Working with designers from different eras reflects Fjordfiesta's belief in Scandinavian design; both classic and contemporary. Finding the essence of now is equally important to us as recognizing the legacy of the past and we are proud to be working with the creative minds behind design group «Norway Says», known today as «Anderssen & Voll» and «Andreas Engesvik, Oslo».
THE HORIZON AND BEYOND
The journey has only just begun. Our vision is to keep on introducing furniture from our finest designers, taking an active part in both preserving and developing the Scandinavian design heritage.
