”We both recently became fathers”
Design duo Anderssen & Voll team up with Nofred and for the first time creates design for children.
“This is the first time we are working with children’s design. We both recently became fathers; so creating objects for children has become relevant. And you want to create something you can see being used in your own home and together with your kids”, says Thorbjørn Andersen from Anderssen & Voll.
“Children seek patterns and repetition. They look for symmetry. They look for objects to mediate their imagination. A mirror could turn into a scene or a house. A wall hook could turn into a flower bud or a wall bug”, says Anderssen & Voll, who have won several design awards through the years.
BRINGING THE CHILDREN INTO THE FAMILY ROOM
“We believe in promoting presence and togetherness in a modern and fast-paced world with furniture that brings the children into the family room”, says Signe Holst owner at Nofred.
The new designs were presented for the world press during Maison&Objet in Paris, September 6-10, 2019.
“A good design for children is something you can keep around even after your kid grows up”, says Espen Voll from Anderssen & Voll.
