Overview

This richly illustrated book for the first time tells the story of pioneering designer Terje Ekstrøm (1944-2013) whose work contributed a new vitality and independence to the Norwegian design scene of the 1970s and 80s. Challenging the ideals of the golden age of Scandinavian design, his practice was characterised by an eclectic search for originality. As this richly illustrated book shows, Ekstrøm was both a product of his own time and far ahead of it.

Seen as one of Norway’s first postmodern designers, his internationally successful Ekstrem chair achieved iconic status due to its unique and visionary qualities, as did his audio equipment design for the renowned Tandberg Radiofabrikk. Including specially commissioned photographs of his workplace and home, this book for the first time tells the story of Ekstrøm’s design practice.

With essays by Denise Hagströmer, Espen Johnsen, Trygve Ask, Kjetil Fallan, Janne Beate Reitan and a foreword by Widar Halén
