Before founding Anderssen & Voll, Torbjørn Anderssen and Espen Voll were founder members of the design group Norway Says. They established Anderssen & Voll in 2009 to focus on the design of domestic objects.
The Scandinavian design duo, innovate and play with traditional furniture forms; updating classic forms for contemporary living, focusing on comfort, quality and durability. As they say: "A good product builds and expands on tradition but at the same time, it breaks with tradition. Change and elements of surprise stimulate thought and reflection – even for people who are not very interested in design and even if the change is not radical. That tiny second of reflection is the window of opportunity where we can communicate with the users and that is what we are looking for."
They have designed furniture, lighting and products for manufacturers including Hay, Muuto, Foscarini, New Works and La Palma.
