One of my favorite concept stores in Oslo Kollekted By, created and run by Italian-born Alessandro D’Orazio and Oslo native Jannicke Kråkvik, famous for their creative studio Kråkvik&D’Orazio, has moved from its previous location and opened its doors at the corner of Toftes and Rathkes Gate in Schous Plass. I stopped by earlier to shoot some photos and congratulate Jannicke and Alessandro for the beautiful new space, which was everything I expected and more!
Jannicke has kindly let me and Elisabeth Heier shoot a few photos as soon as it opened at 11 this morning and I am glad to have finished editing them so early so I can give you a quick sneak peek. I will be going back for more photos when it is a better time for shooting however I think you already get a feeling of the new Kollekted By space. Styled with a combination of warm and cool , yet inviting hues , all their carefully curated selection seem to find its place in each room effortlessly.
The store is divided into fluent spaces whose boundaries mix with each other. You can walk from what feels like an open concept living room to an open concept dining room then through the kitchen to the study. The kitchen is from Frama ( the store is Frama studio as well) here in the store one can find all the selection of Frama, from furnitures to tableware , while the study features Menu Afteroom chairs and books along with many more details from brands Workstead, Eumenes, Futagami, Hampson Woods, Guri Sandvik, Menu, Labt, Restart Milano, Karimoku New Standard, MAK Lab, Karin Carlander, Mae Engelgeer and more. I am not going to talk too much about this today since this is just a sneak peek, but if you are in Oslo feel free to stop by its opening hours to experience it yourself, it is really worth the visit!
