Playful, comfortable and functional goes a long way in describing the Eva Mork furniture design collection. The minimalism that Scandinavian design is known for is in evidence, but with the added extra touch that makes each piece really stand out.
Norwegian nature provides much of the inspiration for Eva Mork. “I live in a wonderful place in Norway, close to the sea and mountains, and with a rich bird life,” she says. “My inspiration comes from the nature and culture that surrounds me, from the birds’ movements across the sky to the hulls of boats and everything in between.”
With years of experience as an interior stylist behind her, Eva Mork started designing her own furniture out of a wish to create something out of the ordinary. Her aim is to create pieces that have “that little something that makes you fall in love with them.”
Her furniture has been described as both sculptural and alive, and it manages to flawlessly bridge the gap between decorative and practical. More than just pieces of furniture, the designs might well end up being the focal point of a room, yet are still comfortable.
“For me, when I have managed to create something of beauty that is also practical, I have hit the nail on the head,” she says.
All the furniture in the Eva Mork collection is made to order and signed by the designer herself. She also makes commissioned pieces for those who want something truly unique.
