Norwegian designer, curator, collector and illustrator Amy Hunting [1] is transforming factory waste wood cut-offs into a collection of patchwork [2] furniture. Strong and pleasing to the eye, the collection is made entirely from different types of wood, glued together to form a new material. Her collection inspired by Russian Matrioska Dolls [3] consists of a limited collection of chairs, a book box and 12 lamps that fit neatly inside one another. Each piece is handmade to be slightly different from the other.

In addition to making furniture and products, the East London-based designer enjoys exhibiting her and her friends works. She is the co-founder and curator of Norwegian Prototypes [4], an annual exhibition held during the London Design Festival featuring new Norwegian furniture design.
