Torbjørn Afdal was among the most prolific post-war Norwegian designers. Today he is regarded as one of Norway’s most famous designers. His furniture has been in the collections of The White House and the Japanese Emperor. Considered one of his foremost classics is the multipurpose bench Krobo, designed by Afdal in 1962. Krobo’s clean, straightforward lines reflect Afdal’s refined understanding of shape and material, but also reflect his architectural style and the ideas of Scandinavian Design. With details such as raised side edges and black-coated steel fixtures, the bench has a soft, but solid appearance. Krobo became an instant classic in Norway because of its unique flexibility and many uses. The bench easily turns into a sofa table, some extra seating, a multimedia bench – or simply a decorative object where you can store your books or other everyday items that deserve a proper display. All in all, the Krobo bench will without doubt adapt to any room and give added value to any space. Krobo is relaunched in collaboration with Utopia Retro Modern.
