This week, the pop-up concept restaurant, KUTT Gourmet, a part of the Trippel portfolio, opened at Blindern campus (UiO). The KUTT experiment is a collaboration between SiO Mat og Drikke, Matvett and Kompass & Co. The main reason why we waste food is that it is nearing its expiration date "best before". Perfectly good food that goes straight into the bin! By using this food we can work towards a more sustainable utilization of resources. Every day a course is composed and sold at only 30 kr. Opening hours: Tuesday-Friday from 12 to 14 (or while supplies last), until 8 May. Read article from the local paper here, see the TV report from NRK Østlandssendingen here, and see more images here.

Gold in Pentaward
The series of Norgesbrød from Bakehuset is awarded Gold in Pentaward 2014. The neatly crafted bread represents the long baking tradition, from the northest of the north to the southest of the south, of our country. Another great tradition is carving out personal chopping boards. Many of us have done our best during art & craft-classes back in school, and many of us will probably find a variety of them, under the Christmas tree. Remember then, to embrace both the entrepreneurship and the handcraft. A combination of the two might = gold!
The Stockholm office is growing!
The more the merrier is a philosophy we live by at Scandinavian Design Group, which is why we recently hired new talent. And we have to say; going to work is even more fun now. Say hi to Felicia, Henrik, Lisen, Christian and Rebecka! Felicia Leksell is Account Director from Brand Union with a special knack for brand strategy and business development. Henrik Walse is an awarded senior designer from Mother in New York. Lisen Lindberg is educated at Hyper Island and before joining SDG worked at the digital agency Britney. Christian Sundgren is our Head of Innovation, recently from the planning agency Here are lions. Rebecka Gustafson is Junior planner, straight from the University of Umeå.
Blossa13 struck gold!
Scandinavian Design Group's design for Blossa13 won a gold medal for packaging design in the Swedish Design Awards 2014. We are proud to announce that both the jury and the popular vote ranked Blossa13 as No 1 in the packaging category. The Dalecarlia design is dear to us and it’s nice to know that the opinion is shared. And a big thanks to Blossa for always making the work a pleasure.
The motivation: “For the colourful, catching personality, that doesn’t hesitate to stick it’s feet deep down in the mid-swedish soil.”
Fall and the City
Seasons are changing and what better way to enjoy than to experience early fall in New York City? Our Strategic Advisor Mads will bring a small group of clients from Oslo to attend the World Business Forum. This years conference celebrates the PROVOCATEUR; The risk-takers, the change-agents and the paradigm challengers. Open your mind to thinking differently! Good luck with the final pieces of planning, and we will eagerly await the full, extended report from the trip. (Image: Daniel Kukla)
