After earning his bachelor’s degree in industrial design from Newcastle University in Australia, designer Hallgeir Homstvedt went on to work for the celebrated studio Norway Says. When the studio split in 2009, he founded his own in Oslo, Norway, focusing on furniture, interior design and product design. His Groove Trivet (2016) is equally functional and sculptural – an object that serves its utilitarian purpose well and adds beauty to any interior. It’s crafted of attractive marble with uniformly machined grooves, which act as cooling ribs that dissipate heat. Due to the natural characteristics of marble, each trivet is unique. Made in China.
