When Anderssen & Voll created their Pavilion chair series, the award-winning duo drew their design cues from the iconic Langelinie Pavilion. Now, this light and lyrical aesthetic has been translated into a compact desk intended to suit both office and home spaces. Designed at the start of the pandemic, the Pavilion desk took the demands of home-working into consideration with a version that boasts a back panel.
Anderssen & Voll
Based in Oslo, partners Torbjørn Anderssen and Espen Voll have been instrumental in putting Norway on the global design map ever since they joined forces in 2009. Anderssen & Voll have received numerous international awards for their work within furniture, lighting and home accessories, including the Wallpaper* Design Awards, the Red Dot and iF Awards, as well as other accolades for Best Designs and Best Designers of the year. And yet they approach each new project with a feeling of freedom.
Rather than being defined by and confined to a specific way of being, Anderssen & Voll prefer to be open. They develop emotionally-driven designs. Their overall desire is to create designs with souls. To animate something inanimate. “We’re not dogmatic about it,” say Anderssen and Voll. “We’re quite open. We start designing and watch a piece take on its own personality. It’s almost like breathing life into it.”
