For the past three years, Norway’s annual appearance at Milan Design Week has been one of the highlights of the festival, showcasing the work of a selection of the most talented Norwegian designers and craft artists, and bringing thousands of visitors face to face with the country’s thriving community-driven, mutually supportive and cross-disciplinary design culture. This year’s exhibition,  Norwegian Presence, marks the beginning of a new chapter for Norway in Milan, as the show makes its debut appearance in a new location – the city’s rapidly evolving creative hotspot, Zona Tortona. Four craft artists, 10 design studios and six manufacturers will come together to present objects and prototypes ranging from furniture and textiles to sculpture and installation. 

Norwegian Crafts has selected four craft artists whose works challenge the notion of everyday objects through the use of sound and tactility, playing with the concepts of functionality versus sculptural qualities.
