Design AWAA, 2013
Solid American walnut, upholstery
Made in USA by Bernhardt Design

Oslo is a chair that bridges generations, aesthetics and continents through its design. Created by a vibrant young Norwegian collective, AWAA, the Oslo chair evokes the great Scandinavian masters without being derivative. Cleverly designed as a pure wood frame with comfort layered upon it, Oslo is a rare lounge chair that does not add much visual weight to a room. Executed in the warmth of walnut, the Oslo chair embodies American craftsmanship and materials.

The Norwegian design collective Angell Wyller Aarseth (AWAA) was founded in 2010 by Christoffer Angell, Øyvind Wyller and Simen Aarseth. While pursuing Masters of Design at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, the three decided to form a loose collective to explore ideas, while also continuing to work individually as interior architects and product designers. Their diverse personal interests and experiences contribute to their designs. Angell is an interior architect with experience in lighting design, having interned with the American lighting brand Rich Brilliant Willing. Wyller is a freelance designer and has experience with design journalism from his time as a columnist with the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet. Aarseth works as a brand strategist and designer at the Oslo-based firm Work.

Oslo is made of solid American walnut and available in a variety of textile and leather options.

Bernhardt Design was founded in 1980 by the 125-year-old Bernhardt Furniture Company. In 2001, Bernhardt Design cemented its reputation as a leader and innovator in furniture design and production by partnering with Ross Lovegrove to create the iconic Go Chair, the world’s first magnesium chair. Since then, President Jerry Helling has assembled an international roster of creative talent, including Arik Levy, Jaime Hayon, Jeffrey Bernett, Lievore Altherr Molina, Yves Béhar and Charles Pollock. Bernhardt Design strongly supports the rising generation of creative talent through its interdisciplinary course at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena and the ICFF Studio program.
