Broadway by Torbjørn Afdal – relaunched by Eikund, is nominated in Bo Bedre’s design awards in the same category as last year – «Årets relansering» (Relaunch of the year). The awards are held on August 28th.
The jury says:
Torbjørn Afdal won gold at the craft fair So Wohnt Europe in Munich in 1959 with the chair Broadway, and it’s not hard to understand why. The rigid oak frame is nicely broken by the softpadded leather seat, while horn-like protrusions finishes the design in a devilish way. Eikund who has specializes in relaunches of Norwegian design, is also behind this.
