New and old unite in the Monstera project; merging traditional crafting techniques with cutting edge 3D-print technology.
The starting point for this collaboration was a trip to the Arven archives, stored deep underneath one of Bergen’s seven infamous mountains. It was here Lars Beller Fjetland uncovered sketches of an asymmetric serving cutlery from the late fifties that never made it into production. He was commissioned by Theodor Olsen to rework the idea, bringing it into the 20th century. A challenge he happily accepted.
Protoypes are hand forged by master craftsman Bjørn Steffen Thorsen at Arven in Bergen.
