Vera Kleppe and Åshild Kyte are the talents behind the up-and- coming Norwegian
design studio Vera & Kyte. The Bergen-based duo credit their mixed aesthetic influences

and curiosity about materials—as well as eye-opening internships with companies Fora

Form and Varier—for their early design successes. These include pendant lights in vivid

lacquered birch and colored glass, a daybed that evokes leisure and relaxation in its

steel-frame form, and a series of pedestal tables that the designers say epitomizes their

focus on “unpretentious combinations of form and color.”
