Elementa has an ongoing collaboration with excellent Norwegian design office StokkeAustad who are really unique design pratice in Oslo. We have spent a lot of time drinking coffee with Jonas and Øystein discussing the need for new approaches in workspace design and digressing into all kinds of essential and sort-of-related topics. StokkeAustad are strong design-thinkers with an uncurable hunger for simplicity and elegance in their solution.
They have designed the O3 storage series, the dB silent cabinets and the marvelous UN furniture system.

After a lot of discussions concerning the need for more greenery in our own workspace Hallgeir designed the Elementa UT series of workstations as well as the Elementa KI light which we are presently engeneering, and hope to have ready by spring 2016.
