Home Edition 2020 

Let’s keep the cultural life alive!  As a consequence of Covid-19, our social and cultural life has been reduced to a minimum and we all need to adapt to this unprecedented situation. Since we have a commitment with you, with the architecture scene, we came up with this new idea that is meant to lift your spirits and provide you with some genuine inspiration – at your home. Therefore, from Monday, March 23rd, onwards, each day at 7 p.m. we will be sharing one of the unique talks from the previous 35 events that we have held during the last 5 years.

TALK #29: Kari Nissen Brodtkorb
This talk is kindly supported by BoConcept.

About Kari Nissen Brodtkorb

Kari Nissen Brodtkorb was born In 1942 in Oslo. After her graduation from the Norwegian Institute of Technology in 1965 she worked as an architect at Harald Hille’s office and at Anker & Høla in Oslo, the last five years as a partner. From 1985 she has run her own architectural office in Bærum. She is best known for the residential and commercial complex The beach at Aker Brygge in Oslo. Following the construction of the beach, Kari Nissen Brodtkorb has been involved in a wide range of residential and commercial buildings throughout the country. Through her practice, she has served as inspiration for a new residential architecture with high architectural qualities, and as an outstanding architect with significant practice. Recognized as one of Norway’s leading housing designers, in 1994 she was awarded the cherished Houen Foundation Award. From 1990 to 1994, Kari Nissen Brodtkorb was professor of architecture at the School of Architecture in Oslo. www.merarkitektur.no

AnA Oslo 02 – One year after we held our first event in Norway, we returned to the Vulkan Arena in Oslo on September 19, 2019. Two Norwegian and one Canadian architect talked about their personal experiences and important creative periods within their work: Kari Nissen Brodtkorb, Einar Jarmund and Todd Saunders.

This talk is presented with the support of BoConcept. 
In her talk Kari Nissen Brodtkorb speaks about how during her childhood all the furniture was alternatively used by her family. Beds became trampolines and the dining table became a carpenter’s bench. She believes this gave her an active relation to space and creation.

Designer ARDE shares this passion for flexible furniture and creative ideas. He creates designs that are of maximum value to the user. Cupertino is everything you need in a home office, hidden away in an instant. Wall mounted for minimal use of space, this wall office is perfect for small homes. Open the wall office to reveal desk space, cable management and storage compartments and neatly hide it all when not in use. The design of the legs combines the different materials from the table top for a complete and stylish look. You can find BoConcept’s brand book here: Link.
