Top Designs

Each year, the Norwegian Design Council recognizes companies and designers for their innovative work, in categories such as textiles, packaging and graphics. In the May 2014 issue of Viking, we highlighted several 2013 winners. Here are a few more companies and products that also received Design Excellence Awards from the Council.
Scandinavian Business Seating is dedicated to making well-designed, comfortable office chairs. The Håg SoFi chair is no exception. This line of chairs comes in a variety of models, materials and colors.
Viking Footwear has been making footwear since 1920. Today, the company creates boots and shoes for men, women and kids—all handmade with natural rubber. Viking Junior Thermo Boot Extreme keeps little feet dry and warm for those cold and wet weather days.

Vestre designs modern furniture for private and public environments. Stoop is a multiple stair bench that serves as a table or bench and provides stadium-style seating—perfect for hanging out with friends.

Anya Britzius is editor of Viking magazine. She lives in Minneapolis, Minn., and enjoys baking, reading and keeping up on modern Norwegian trends.
