The Architect (Arkitekten) explores Scandinavian architecture, design and societal imbalances
Norwegian miniseries The Architect (Arkitekten) is set against a backdrop of stylish Scandinavian architecture and design, yet is as bleak as it is beautiful.
The mobile we see Nina hanging for their forthcoming baby, is a Flenstead mobile. Designed in 1970, this was the first of many mobiles by Ole Flensted. Bars of light and heavy elements in dynamic tension suggests six planets with their moons – or perhaps different levels of the light and the dark sides of the personality. Handmade in Denmark, this beautiful sculptural mobile works equally well for adults or children. It is perfectly balanced so that all elements are in constant motion.
Their dining chairs are Gervasoni Brick 23 Chair designed by Paola Navone for Italian design house and manufacturer Gervasoni. This eye-catching chair features chrome-plated steel piping and mesh made from quality rawhide.
The silver ceiling pendant lamp above the dining table is a Ktribe Suspension Lamp designed by Philip Stark.
