We believe strongly in our Scandinavian design heritage, adding some bold Norwegian flavor.
With the ambition to manage, develop and reconnect to the Scandinavian design heritage, architect Paul Lunder founded Fjordfiesta in 2001. With strong ties to the aesthetics of Scandinavian design culture and 21st century values regarding ethic and environmental issues, Fjordfiesta’s intention is to create furniture that will last for generations to come.
“In the borderland between high-tech industrial production and minute carpentry is where our furniture takes form. Under the supervision of foreman Jonny, sketches transform to individual pieces of furniture with the love and passion of our skilled craftsmen. Located in a deep valley by the shore of the Dokka River, the factory has been producing quality furniture for the past 65 years. Dokka is also where Hans Brattrud resides today, still taking an active part in the production and development of his esteemed Scandia range. Jonny: «We must also give credit to Hans [Brattrud] for making production possible by introducing the required technology in Norway in the 60′s.»
We believe that timeless design is a solid environmental effort; enhanced further by the light environmental footprint we leave behind with each carefully assembled piece of furniture. To ensure the quality of our products and the working conditions of our employees we manufacture our furniture in Scandinavia. The material is chosen with great consideration to the environmental impact of each component.
In 2013 we proudly introduced Scandia Junior Eco. Scandia Junior Eco is ecolabeled by the Swan, the official Nordic Ecolabel. In that way we can ensure that a Norwegian design icon meets the future even more friendly to the environment. The Nordic Ecolabel implies that the Scandia Junior Eco is evidenced the best environmental choice.”
