CLIENT: NORWEGIAN JEKT TRADE MUSEUM
LOCATION: BODØ, NORWAY
Kvorning Design creates exhibition for the new Norwegian experience and science centre, Norwegian Jekt Trade Museum. The centre conveys the heritage of Norwegian jekt shipping and is located by the Bodø lake in north-western Norway.
For more than 400 years the jekt was an important freight vessel for local tradesmen and its wide body and sails witness of the local boatbuilding traditions of the coast stretching from Vestlandet and northwards.
The world’s only remaining Nordlandsjekt ‘Anna Karoline’ forms a central part in the dessemination of the Norwegian jekt shipping heritage. Kvorning Design won the exhibition in international competition.
