DESIGN: Sigve Knutson for Nedre Foss.
Bokk represents a rich addition to the Nedrefoss brand in terms of materiality and expression. The way Sigve Knutson is turning towards our collective memory for inspiration as well as his approach to design as functional sculptures, seem like a perfect match to Nedre Foss values.
The master mould of this mysterious creature was hand carved by the designer. As with most of Sigve´s work, also this object is inextricably tied to his drawings. In Norwegian, Bokk is a type of dark and strong lager. Read as a phonetic transcription, Bokk could mean "A Bend" or simply "A Buck". Bronze was the first metal alloy to be shaped into tools and ornaments some 5000 years ago. Bokk´s bronze is made from a mix of copper and tin.
