Kunstnernes Hus
/ (1 of 1)

In 2011 günzler.polmar did furniture and interior work for Kunstnernes Hus, which is one of the biggest contemporary art institutions in Norway.
The foundation and gallery is located in a modernist building from 1930, designed by architects Gudolf Blakstad og Herman Munthe-Kaas. Earlier in 2011 the building was named Norways most important public building, because of it´s great architecture.

Our work was connected to the restaurant and bar in the entrance area. Our goal was to make the interior of the big space more connected, to add warmth, and to create an atmosphere that encourage people to use the room in a more laid-back and relaxed manner.

günzler.polmar designed new covering for the bar counters, with a composition of big tiles made of white and gray pigmented plywood. We also designed a wardrobe, a bookshelf on wheels, and bar tables, and chose new sofas and bar stools. It was fantastic to get to work with such an amazing space, and to try to come up with solutions that highlight and underline the existing architecture.
