Another brand satisfying our appetite for Scandinavian design is Norwegian design duo Morten & Jonas.

The green-coated metal frame holds the trays in place, creating a fragmented and modern tabletop.

What is your background? 

I started off working in the music business, initially for a tiny record company that released novelty records.
