The Danish brand Erik Jørgensen and the Norwegian design practice Snøhetta joined forces for the first time back in 2017. Here they, together with Wallpaper* Handmade, created Portal – a design which merged artistic vision with traditional furniture craftsmanship. In 2020 the two brands once again collaborated and together created the Casework collection. A collaboration that is less of an art installation and more of an actual piece of furniture, which opens the possibility of bringing the Erik Jørgensen x Snøhetta vision and craftsmanship into private homes and offices.
