Studio Sløyd is an Oslo based design studio -
- We focus on material exploration and creating long lasting objects.
We are currently working on our first full furniture collection that will be released and shown at the Sorgenfri Gallery in Oslo the 22. of august (2020). The collection is inspired by the the traditional use of pine in the nordic countries and how the material got its bad reputation.
The BLIMP chair is an exploration of contrast. Designed to highlight the differences between the materials. The massive rounded pine seat meets the hard lines of the steel creating this contrast. This chair came to be using only subtractive manufacturing methods giving it its distinct organic look.

The Basset chair is designed for everyday situations. The broad seat, rounded arm rests and wide back gives comfortable support and offers various sitting positions. The three materials – aspen, steel, and wool are all from Norway. The focus on local production and seamless joinery have been a key part designing this lounge chair, all this without compromising easy manufacturing. The unified design and materials make it an eye caching chair with subtle details of high level craftmanship.
