Lars Beller Fjetland

Lars Beller Fjetland won the Designer Award in 2013 given by the magazines “Elle Decoration Norway” and “Elle Decoration UK”. Born in Norway, he is known for his tables and birds of sustainable wood. He believes that we benefit from daily interaction with natural materials and it is this belief that makes the work of Lar Beller Fjetland, which in my opinion can be defined as the combination of function, beauty and simplicity. He strives to make each object created with the feeling of longevity, and with the greatest challenge to use only materials that have inherent qualities. This will ensure that every object created is able to fulfill the main purpose without an expiration date. Lars Beller is constantly looking to broaden his horizons as a dedicated explorer of form and function through various new projects.
