Haldar – Design Andreas Bergsaker
Haldar is a wall rack that can be used in the hallway, kitchen or bedroom to help organize your belongings in a unique and stylish way. The name Haldar is a play on words and relates to Norwegian words for holding on to things. Andreas Bergsaker found inspiration for Haldar in a beautiful old kitchen towel holder that has been in his family for generations. The traditional towel holders were commonly found in Norwegian kitchens, where a decorative towel would hang on a rod whereas the everyday towels were hidden behind. Compared to its historical "ancestor", Haldar is stripped down to the bare minimum with hidden hooks facing the wall keeping the functionality at hand.
You can hang one or multiple Haldars next to each other at different angles creating a stylish wall installation. In addition to the hidden hooks facing the wall, Haldar features tailor-made wall mounts allowing it to be mounted at any angle, from horizontal to vertical, offering ultimate flexibility and an opportunity to challenge wall organizer installations.
Made in Norway
Haldar has been developed in close cooperation between the designer and the Norwegian manufacturers. Haldar is manufactured by Brødr. Øyehaug, located in Ørsta, a contemporary manufacturer with 75 years of production experience of wooden products. The wall mount that allows Haldar to be hung at any angle is produced by Våpensmia, another Norwegian company with an eye for precision. Våpensmia is located in the village of Dokka.

Norwegian Forest – Design Vera & Kyte
Norwegian Forest tea towels are inspired by the forest and Norway´s stunning nature. Vera & Kyte found inspiration for Norwegian Forest from their own walks in the forest. The contrasts between the delicate pine needles carpeting the forest floor and the rough bark on the tall pine trees are interpreted into unique organic patterns.
Norwegian Forest draws its colors from the four seasons and will give a picture of how the forest changes throughout the year. The first line of tea towels is Blue, representing the Norwegian winter and the clear blue light often seen when the ground is covered by snow.
Produced at Grinakervev
