Norwegian quarrying company Lundhs is the largest producer of natural stone in Northern Europe, with a history of over 100 years sourcing and supplying Norway’s unique larvikite stone. As well as providing raw stone to global factories for worktops, tiles and cladding under the brand Lundhs Real Stone, Lundhs supports and collaborates with designers and artists in order to discover and promote innovative applications for natural stone.
At Norwegian Presence, Lundhs presents its Lundhs Real Stone materials and objects from two limited edition design collections. Essence is a collection of interior accessories, designed by Thomas Jenkins and Sverre Uhnger. Epilogue is a collection of vases and boards, made of surplus material from stone production, made in collaboration with Norwegian design duo Vera & Kyte. Lundhs Real Stone worktops are also used on Hamran’s kitchen module, which is displayed in the exhibition. This is a collaboration that evolved from when the companies met during the preparation for Norwegian Presence 2020
