Before founding Anderssen & Voll, Torbjørn Anderssen and Espen Voll were founder members of the design group Norway Says. They established Anderssen & Voll in 2009 to focus on the design of domestic objects.
They describe themselves as being receptive to both cultural and market influences, uniting these sources of inspiration to produce innovative and desirable products for their clients.
As they note: "A good product builds and expands on tradition but at the same time, it breaks with tradition. Change and elements of surprise stimulates thought and reflection – even for people who are not very interested in design and even if the change is not radical. That tiny second of reflection is the window of opportunity where we can communicate with the users and that is what we are looking for."
Anderssen & Voll have received several awards for their work; including the Wallpaper Award, Red Dot Award, IF Award and Honorary Award for best Design in Norway.
