Meaning ‘Pair’ in Norwegian, Par references a coupling of shapes, nationalities, and the designers’ sensibilities. The table and floor lamp were created by Trueing & Andreas Bergsaker for Sight Unseen Offsite’s 2018 edition. In each, a pair of sculpted fins are joined by a bridge at the base. Their construction in fine-grained Douglas Fir highlights the warmth and subtlety of the chosen material, while a light source hidden at the front provides an indirect glow.
