The work of Norwegian designer Andreas Engesvik
Copenhagen based Danish manufacturer Muuto‘s Corky glass carafe designed by Oslo based Norwegian designer Andreas Engesvik. Andreas Engesvik on the design “The shape of the Corky carafe is inspired by the archetypical bottle. It is a straightforward combination of glass and cork that functions equally well as a wine carafe, a water jug or even a milk bottle.
The Woods is the second collaboration between the Norwegian design studios StokkeAustad and Andreas Engesvik, Oslo. The inspiration was found in the forests and the lights of the North. A tree changing colours and transparency through the seasons is a fascinating process which was captured in this glass object.
Andreas Engesvik, formerly part of Norway Says, is among Norway’s leading designers. He has previously been awarded designer of the year in Norway and has received International awards and recognition for his work with furniture, lighting and home accessories.
Andreas Engesvik on his design philosophy; “My expression is rooted in a Scandinavian approach. The basis of the products are often driven by a focus on content in combination with a strong sense of form.”
Andreas Engesvik on new Nordic design; “New Nordic design can be categorized as new and fresh takes on old categories.”
