Among other things, they jointly started the Örnsberg auction (2012-2017), which was a vital contributor to spreading interest and knowledge about our contemporary design scene. In addition, they had the mission to decorate several of the restaurant concept Omnipollo's restaurants and bars around the world. At this autumn's Contemporary auction, four exclusive chairs from Omnipollo's restaurant in Gothenburg will be sold. The restaurant was unfortunately closed due to the current world situation, after opening as late as 2018. Their playful and norm-critical design language is significant and has set the agenda for how the aesthetics of our time will be written into history.
Two of the 60 chairs for the restaurant, made by master carpenter Martin Altwegg, are included in the catalogue. Restaurant Dill is an interesting example of how contemporary designers and their objects have gained an increased influence in our time, as opinion leaders and seasoners. Designers have been granted more space to extend the boundaries aesthetically and materially through several private contractors in restaurants and shops, which has helped to highlight artistic values of otherwise functional things. Today, many designers work cross-border in the field of art and design.
