Norsk Design og Arkitektursenter – Scandi styling

Scandinavia is renowned for its design, but there’s more to it than Ikea. It’s worth checking out the program at the Norwegian Design and Architecture Centre (DogA), which was established by the Norwegian Design Council and Norsk Form.

DogA hosts regular exhibitions, workshops and events. Some of their past offerings have included the Norwegian Design Council Awards exhibition, mid-century Scandinavian designer furniture markets, Christmas markets featuring local designers, and Oslo Fashion Week. 

If there’s nothing on the program that grabs your interest, DogA is worth visiting just for the architecture. The building is a converted transformer station dating from 1898, and it has a cool gift shop and a cafe overlooking the river that intersects Oslo (check the Akerselva article).
