Snøhetta are renowned as the architects behind the Norwegian Opera in Oslo, Ground Zero in New York, and Egypt’s New Library of Alexandria. They also designed NCP’s striking S-1500 chair!
Every time someone buys an S-1500 chair, they are recycling 1.5 kg of plastic from the Helgeland’s aquaculture industry. Equally important, of course, is that they are getting a very comfortable chair that is a welcome visual addition to any interior space.
Perhaps it comes as no surprise that this is an award-winning idea from Hemnesberget, a little fjordside village in Northern Norway!
There is a good chance one of these chairs is already in use somewhere near you – at a school or conference facility, a museum, or at the popular restaurant The Salmon in Oslo.
If you are visiting Hemnesberget, you can test the comfort of the S-1500 chair at goldsmith Merete Mattson’s workshop and store on the quay. In fact, you can buy a chair here and take it with you.
