Anderssen & Voll was established in the fall of 2009. Torbjørn Anderssen and Espen Voll were previously  founders and running partners of the design group Norway Says. Anderssen & Voll works within various fields of design but focus on the domestic objects. Design at A & V  means being receptive to cultural and market  influences and applying this knowledge in forward-thinking ways to generate groundbreaking and desirable products for our clients.

Anderssen & Voll have received several awards for their work; including Wallpaper Award, Red Dot Award, IF Award and Honorary Award for best Design in Norway.

Running in the morning through the city (down what the germans call a fussgangerzone) and being amazed by all the grand empty old buildings that reminded me of my Berlin beginnings. Grafitti on buildings. Lovely broken walls with acne'd facades from decades of reverse engineering. Discovering that all the ships on the river were party boats and open till the morning. Sweating so much in one of the clubs, my phone got messed up. Losing phone in said club. Visiting belgrade police station to report a then stolen phone to a twenty-something cop with a doctor's lab coat, listening to Rammstein (loudly) while hacking out my report on a pre-electric typewriter that looked (and sounded) as if it was from some era before typewriters were invented.   Thinking of Naked Lunch. Thinking of Die-Hard. Listening to architects talk about porous facades. Thinking of old smart bombs. Imagining the flash and crunch of several floors of reinforced concrete collapsing in on themselves. Wondering why I'm the only interactive guy here. Why are there so many beautiful women in Belgrade? Why are there so many beautiful women in Belgrade?!
