Magnus Pettersen is a Norwegian designer based in London. Magnus set up his own design studio in 2011, focusing on furniture, lighting and home accessories, as well as working on more traditional product design projects. Magnus´ work reflects his Norwegian heritage by being functional and utilitarian, but without taking on a stereotypical Scandinavian style. It often has an industrial feel to it which is soften by mixing in natural materials and warmer colours. His design process is driven by being honest to the materials and keeping the manufacturing processes as simple as possible, without compromising on detail. Since the launch of his studio he had had success with products for Areaware, Iittala, and a range of private projects.
