Dayboard Calendar by StokkeAustad
Jonas R. Stokke and Øystein Austad, who work in Oslo, Norway, under the name StokkeAustad, created this Dayboard calendar in order to give people more freedom to arrange the year as they see fit. Each individual date is affixed to the steel base with magnets, allowing users to move the days around.

Lobby Chair by StokkeAustad
We love the silhouette of this Lobby Chair, which StokkeAustad says "derived from experiments on how an objects relates to its spatial surroundings. We looked at how a product can mark off an area and so create its own zone the user steps into. The extruded armrests and hanging seat is a result of this."
