About the designer  
Magnus Pettersen was born in Sarpsborg, Norway. He studied product and furniture design at Kingston University and received an MA in Industrial Design at Central Saint Martin’s. In 2010, Magnus set up his design studio in London, where he develops furniture, lighting and home accessories. Magnus’ work is simple and functional, a reflection of his Norwegian heritage. His design process is driven by honesty to the materials with which he works and by a manufacturing process that is as streamlined as possible. He draws inspiration from 1920’s glamour and luxury, mid-century simplicity, and Scandinavian purity.
