Internationalization

In recent years, Kvorning Design & Communication has strived to extend its activities significantly across Danish borders. So far the strategy has resulted in a boom of activities in Norway. Since our first Norwegian project – Petter Dass Museum at Alstahaug – Kvorning has developed, designed and produced exhibition solutions for 32 museums across Norway, from Alta in the north to Stavanger in the south. Denmark obviously remains Kvorning’s core market, but projects abroad account for an increasing number of design assignments. Partnerships and projects are currently in the works, under development or being completed in: Denmark, Norway, Sweden, England, Belgium, Italy, Hungary, Russia, Dubai, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam, China and the USA.

Kvorning to design Vega world heritage exhibition

Kvorning Design & Communication beats off international competition and wins the contract for the design of a world heritage exhibition about “Wildy, beautiful Vega” commissioned by Vega Verdensarvsenter AS.

The concept of the exhibition is inspired by the rich cultural landscape of the Vega archipelago and forms an abstract retelling of the archipelago’s contrasting landscape with steep mountain sides and flat islands just above sea level. The interior will refer to the typography of the islands and the unique production of eider down, reflective acrylic plates will symbolise the Northern Lights and the selection of colours and materials will be inspired by the wooden houses and churches of Vega.

Vega is one of the world’s most fascinating archipelagos. More than 230 bird species, eiders in particular, thrive on the 6,500 islands, islets and rocks. Through 1,500 years the fishermen and farmers of Vega have lived sustainably in this inhospitable, maritime landscape close to the polar circle thanks to their unique either down harvesting. This is also why Vega’s cultural landscape was inscribed on UNESCO’s world heritage list in 2004.

Vega Verdensarvsenter will open to the public in the autumn of 2018 but the official opening will take place in 2019.

Kvorning wins contract with Norwegian Alta Museum

Kvorning Design & Communication lands a contract with the World Heritage Rock Art Centre – Alta Museum IKS in Alta, Norway for a permanent exhibition about the rock art of Alta named ’Evidence in rock’.

Alta has the biggest known collection of rock carvings dating back to the hunter-gatherer society. The rock art includes both rock carvings and rock paintings crafted 7,000 to 2,000 years ago. The carvings are the primary evidences of settlements and human activities this far North during prehistoric time. Due to this fact, the rock art of Alta was listed as a cultural heritage on UNESCO’s world heritage list in 1985.

’Evidence in rock’ offers lots of interaction and entertainment for the entire family. The 150 m2 exhibition will open during the summer of 2018.
