MACHINE-GENERATED SUMMARY NOTE:
"This thesis consists of a research part and a design project part. The rest of the research part is organised in the following way: In the second chapter Norway’s technological modernization in the late 19th century and its path after independence will be described before the third chapter will focus on the destructive effects of World War II. Then chapter four will highlight the golden era of Norwegian design and the times of international promotion at the world-famous Milan Triennial. Moreover, three influential Norwegian designers of the time, Grete Prytz Kittelsen, Willy Johansson and Birger Dahl, will be introduced in more detail. Subsequently, chapter five will devote itself to the manifold reasons of the slow decay of Norwegian design. Afterwards, chapter six will shed light on the current revival of Norwegian design and the reasons for its ‘resurrection’. Additionally, three contemporary Norwegian designers, Andreas Engesvik, Hallgeir Homstved and Kristine Bjaadal, will be presented. Chapter seven will then conclude.
In the following design project part of this thesis I will explain how my Norwegian heritage guided me in the creation of a product deeply rooted in the traditions of my homeland. I created a pendant lamp inspired by an old fishing net technique, manufactured by a Berlin-based glassblower."
