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 #15: Kjetil Thorsen
About Kjetil Thorsen
Kjetil Trædal Thorsen was born on the Norwegian coastal island of Karmøy. He studied architecture in Graz, Austria. When he completed his studies in 1985, he co-founded the office Snøhetta with his founding partners Craig Dykers and Christoph Kapeller. Today, Snøhetta has grown to become an internationally renowned practice of architecture, landscape architecture, interior architecture, product- and graphic design, with more than 240 employees from 32 different nations.
The studio has completed a diverse range of international prize-winning projects, including the Bibliotheca Alexandrina in Egypt, the National Norwegian Opera and Ballet in Oslo, and the National September 11 Memorial Museum Pavilion in New York City. The practice places experience at the center of their design process, for a design that engages the senses and physicality of the body while fostering social interaction.
AnA Oslo 01 – On September 13th, 2018, we held our first event in Norway with the participation of the Norwegian architects Kjetil Thorsen, Siv Helen Stangeland (and Reinhard Kropf) and the Danish landscape architect, Stig L. Anderson.
This talk is presented with the support of Aritco.
In his talk, Kjetil speaks about how the places he lived in and the people he met influenced the architect he is today. Same as the people, all homes are unique. The home is a special place for you and your nearest and dearest. Home lifts are becoming increasingly common and Aritco truly believes that every home will have a lift one day.
Aritco is a world-leading Swedish supplier of lift solutions for private homes, thanks to their unique combination of design and comfort. Scandinavia has a long tradition of craftsmanship and design awareness. This is a legacy that they continue and refine in their home lifts, where innovation and a beautiful appearance are vital factors.
3 models, hundreds of options. Artico manufactures three different lifts for the home. The Aritco 4000, the Aritco 6000 and the Aritco HomeLift. Find out what model and what size suits your needs on Aritco Home Lifts.
