In 2006 Pur Norsk opened its doors and many asked if there were enough Norwegian products to fill up an entire store. Six years later the shop at Bislett was way too small. On October 8th the entrepreneurs Lien and Altern Halvorsen could welcome old and new customers to 200 square meters in Industrigaten 36 in proximity to Oslo´s most busy shopping street.
Pur Norsk has been the only store in the country to collect iconic and new Norwegian design under the same roof. With twice the floor size of the former store, there is room for a broader range of products such as sofas from LK Hjelle and a re-launch of the Pop Corn chairs designed by Svein Ivar Dysthe. Designers like Liv Refsdal and London based Marte Frisnes enrich the gift line with their jewellery. This Autumn Pur Norsk extend their own product range with the shelf system ”Abel” and the table ”Anna”.
”We rest assured that a design store with only Norwegian products is a valuable contribution to Norway´s biggest shopping street. We have stayed true to our belief that there is a market for Norwegian design. We are thrilled to showcase the very best of Norwegian quality products to both our country men and tourists from all over the world” say the two Pur Norsk founders, Marianne Lien and Lasse Altern Halvorsen in a statement.
All products are either Norwegian by idea, design or production.
From October 8th 2012 Pur Norsk is situated in Industrigaten 36.
