Torbjørn Afdal was one of Norway’s leading mid-century furniture designers. He worked for a number of different companies, but is best known for his designs for Bruksbo, where he was artistic director for many years. His work is heavily influenced by Danish design and he is often mistaken as a Danish designer. Afdal worked mainly in teak and rosewood and his designs are characterised by clean lines, solid construction and subtle detailing.
