The 3o selected designers presenting 24 projects are: Andrea Muribø, Andreas Bergsaker, Anette Krogstad, Ann Kristin Einarsen, Barmen & Brekke, Bjørn Van Den Berg, Gilles & Cecilie Studio, Falke Svatun, Hallgeir Homstvedt og Runa Klock, Jenkins & Uhnger, Jonas Stokke, Kaja Dahl, Kari Mølstad, Kiyoshi Yamamoto, Live Berg Olsen, Marianne Andersen, Martin Høgh Olsen, Martin Solem, Moa Håkansson, Noidoi, Sara Polmar, Silje Nesdal, Stine Aas & Cecilia Zhang og Vera & Kyte.
The exhibition design by the Norwegian-Italian duo Kråkvik & D´Orazio underlines the title Everything is Connected. By using mirrors as a part of the design the idea is to link the different works together and generate reflections and relations both between the projects, the designer and the visitor. All though the different objects have its individuality, they are still connected by visual common features as colors, materiality and form of expression. The paint manufacturer Jotun has designed a color pallet of three different shades especially for the exhibition, consisting of the colors Norwegian Wood, Nordic Breeze and Blue River. Everything is Connected is a result of a collaboration between the design collective Klubben, Norwegian Crafts and Design and Architecture Norway (DOGA) together with Jotun.
