Trond Svendgård & Ove Rogne
Trond Svendgård is a highly awarded gourmet chef, born in Rognan, Norway, so what in the world is he doing designing a lighting fixture? Why flexing his creative muscle, of course! “As a chef you have to think about curves, forms, details, colors, tastes, consistencies and contrasts in each creation. To use this ‘forced’ creativity and artificial finesse in other areas than cooking is a great satisfaction to me!”
He certainly let his imagination roam free when he created the Moo wall light with his design partner Ove Rogne, the CEO and head of design at Northern. The latter, born far up north in the town of Narvik, Norway, has brought the company to a commendable place in the industry—their fixtures recently selected at 100% Norway as one of the finest examples of new Norwegian design.
