Amy Hunting and Oscar Narud, both from Hunting & Narud studio, are two native Norwegians designers established in London years ago. Further to their separate careers as independent designers, they decided to work together joining strategy work and effort. Their design objects and interior design projects are characterised by the great achievement they’ve had between customers and fans. Both designers agree that there are great advantages in using raw, natural materials and in going through craftwork processes because they can both bring the development of the desired piece together.
These two designers interpret and produce all sorts of products as long as they achieve a different take or a new version of the work. They are also adventurous in the use of new materials and unfamiliar structures in these creative processes. Research and work study being key elements in their work since they believe that one should always try to delve into the unknown. “It’s the way to discover your possibilities”, they claim.
Amy specialised in furniture and spatial design; Oscar is a product designer. Together, they combine their knowledge wisely creating interesting and original products. “We design and create objects, concepts and spaces. We have enough experience to embark on any project, looking for necessary solutions to get it done whilst ensuring that we control the entire process from beginning to end. Furthermore, we believe in the enormous possibilities offered by the materials we use and in the simplicity to create clear and convincing solutions.
There is no room for superfluous things in our work “, they say.During the last edition of the London Desing, they presented the side tables Apex, a set of pieces in which glass and wood from different places manage to create practical, elegant and carefully finished objects. At a closer look, it is interesting to discover that the core materials (wood and glass) come into contact at a minimum junction point of least than 5 mm, wherethe the wood cones are supported by the timber inside the glass. The designers have, therefore, achieved to enclose the conical beauty of the wood in a transparent cylindrical shape.
