Espen Voll, Torbjørn Anderssen and Andreas Engesvik began working together in 2000 and established Norway Says in 2002 after collaborating on several successful international exhibitions.  With a portfolio of work that includes textiles, objects and furniture, among other things, the three men believe that “young Nordic designers are ‘born’ global but at the same time have a strong cultural heritage,” and they say that this is the reason why there is so much inspiring work being created by young Scandinavian designers. When asked about their design philosophy, Norway Says is mute on the subject, but they explain their I’m Boo Carafe as “using a simple language to express a complex idea.” In 2007, the trio won the prestigious Torsten and Wanja Söderberg Prize, awarded by a jury who followed the designers's work for one-and-a-half years.
