Anderssen & Voll
Anderssen & Voll is a Oslo based design studio run by Torbjørn Anderssen and Espen Voll. Torbjørn and Espen were born respectively in Elverum, 1976, and in Trondheim, 1965. They both come from creative backgrounds: Torbjørn is the son of a musician and a teacher, and Espen, the son of a ceramist and an architect.
After graduating from the “Bergen Academy of Art and Design” and the “Oslo National Academy of Art”, they went on to cofound the design group Norway Says in 2000. Norway Says were forerunners in a growing international orientation amongst Norwegian designers – at the same time drawing international interest to Norway’s emerging young design scene.
Anderssen & Voll was then established in 2009, and has given Torbjørn and Espen the opportunity to design several iconic objects, and to win several awards, including the Wallpaper Award, IF Award, and Honorary Award for best design in Norway. Anderssen & Voll work in various fields of design, but their main focus is on consumer goods.
