Venice Biennale 2010

23 Oct 2011 / in

Together with a series of young nordic designers, Fantastic Norway was invited to participate in the exhibition “At Work With” at the 2010 Venice Biennale.

We were asked to contribute with one week of work where the studio move into (“At Work With”) the Nordic Pavillion. The concept behind the exhibition series was to exhibit how young designers are working, rather than representations of architectural projects.

In the invited period Fantastic Norway worked with and developed a project affiliated with the camping culture in Norway. During the week we developed a series of new prototypes of the “spikerteltetet” (a permanent housing extension of a caravan) that could attract new user groups and new meaning to camping culture, while existing values are retained and taken seriously.

Fantastic Norway’s contribution contained elements of sociological analysis, interaction, innovation, challenge, chance, meetings, workshops, waffles, objects, dreams and surprises.

TEAM: Haakon Matre Aasarød, Erlend Blakstad Haffner, Ingeborg Cappelen Lindheim, Anette C. Flygansvær, Alex Berg & Antoine Fichaux.
