Curated by designer and interior architect Katrin Greiling, Everything is Connected brings together some of the greatest talents in Norwegian craft and design to tell the story of Norway’s creative scene today.
Everything is Connected seeks to present design and craft in the context of their creation, considering each piece’s place within Norway’s infrastructure of production facilities, workshops, material access and innovation, personal networks, logistics and educational programmes. A designer or craft artist, after all, is not an island, separate from their society, but a part of a broader cultural narrative in which everything is connected.
Everything is Connected presents contemporary Norwegian craft and design by highlighting their geographical qualities and premises, the connection between production facilities, workshops, material access and innovation, personal networks, logistics and educational programmes.
Norwegian Crafts has joined forces once more with Norwegian designers’ union Klubben; DOGA Design and Architecture Norway, and Jotun. Over the five days of the exhibition, these four organisations in collaboration with their partners will bring together 30 of Norway’s craft and design studios.
An award-winning designer, and the founder of Studio Greiling – an agency devoted to furniture design, interior architecture and photography – Katrin Greiling is perfectly placed to curate an exhibition of such creative breadth. With extensive experience, both in Europe and the Middle East, Greiling has a unique insight into the two-way relationship between culture and creativity that Everything is Connected seeks to examine.
