Oslo, Norway

The Telenor Group is one of the largest telecommunications companies in the world. Their headquarters in Oslo, Norway occupies 200,000 square metres and has received several awards, both locally and internationally, for its innovative architecture and inspiring working environment. The brief for the project was to completely refurbish the Telenor Expo Centre – the main conference and event facility for executive guests and visitors. The interior was over 10 years old and appeared dated in comparison to new buildings on the site. It was extremely important that the interiors and technology installed in the centre reflected Telenor’s position as leaders and innovators in the telecommunications sector.


Interior Designer Adam Laska, from Design Partner based in Norway, worked with Telenor to help create a professional and innovative interior. For the meeting rooms, Adam specified the classic Kruze chair, designed by David Fox, upholstered in black leather and oak show-wood outer-shell. Laska specified the 5-star swivel base on the Kruze chairs to provide users with maximum flexibility. The private data rooms in the centre were designed to provide a quiet space for people to dissect complex information. A 4 seater Layla sofa and 2 Layla armchairs upholstered in cream leather were installed along with a Layla coffee table to create the homely and relaxing atmosphere as specified in the brief. The sleek black glass top of the Layla coffee table was an elegant addition to the room, suiting in with the warm cream of the Layla upholstery range.

Exceptional Quality

Adam Laska, Interior Designer at Design Partner, commented: “The quality of Boss Design products is exceptional and helped to reflect the professionalism and status of the Telenor brand. The wide choice of products and finishes available allowed the client to create products bespoke to them.”
