Design studio Gridy goes by a single name, but the studio was established by two designers. Wilhelm Grieg Teisner and Lars Olav Dybdal combined their surnames – Grieg and Dybdal – to form the word Gridy. Both designers studied at the Bergen Academy of Art and Design before moving to Oslo, where they became known for creating functional designs characterised by personality and a sense of humour. Gridy have won several awards, had their work exhibited internationally and have made a name for themselves in Norway and abroad. They bring their characteristic ingenuity to Northern, designing an efficient step ladder that doubles as a unique side table. Or maybe it’s the other way around? One thing’s for sure; Gridy will always give us plenty to talk about.
