Along with 4 other great candidates KUTT Gourmet, a concept from Trippel Season 1 is nominated to the award Ferd - Social Entrepreneur of the year 2015. KUTT Gourmet had its pop-up restaurant experiment this spring, and at the request of committed students, the concept is now reopened at Blindern University. Proud and humble we keep our fingers crossed!
Trippel kicks off again with Season 2
You’ve heard all about Season 1, where we developed new, green, sustainable concepts within the food industry. Season 2 targets the Textile industry and its challenges with overproduction and overconsumption, short lifecycle of products and sustainable growth. This Friday we gather potential participants to knead the challenge together. Trippel season 2 is in collaboration with The Norwegian Centre for Design and Architecture and Abelia.

Blossa15 is finally here!
After almost one year of preparation we are happy to present Blossa15 – inspired by the British tea tradition with the taste of Earl Grey tea. Each year swedish glögg Blossa travels to a destination which inspires the design of the bottle as well as the flavour of the mulled wine. In 2015 the coordinates 51°29’53.5”N 0°08’11.6”W take us to the Bristish Islands, and The London Tea Company. Inspired by the afternoon tea tradition, the design of BLOSSA15 re-invents illustration techniques from traditional British china. Concept and design by Scandinavian Design Group, illustration by Mikael Eriksson.
Isabel Norström has graduated from Berghs School of Communication (congrats!) and is back with us at the Stockholm office as Junior Designer. We're thrilled to have her here again.
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.
