Cathrine Kullberg lives in Oslo, Norway and has had her studio, Cathrine Kullberg Lighting, since 2006. It was there that she created the lovely lamp series Norwegian Forest in 2007.
Cathrine's educational mix of political science, arts, history, design and architecture, was topped up with a Masters Degree at Central Saint Martin's College of Art and Design in London in 2000. An inspiring guest lecture by the London based designer Thomas Heatherwich brought her to the studio, where she was employed as project designer and project manager. Back in Oslo she continued as project leader at Norsk Form, Norwegian Centre of Design, Architectural and The Built Environment. Other work experience includes freelance journalism in design and architecture magazines and national papres.
This diverse experience has prepared Cathrine to enter the land of lighting and investigate the encounter between material, craft and design, lending the lamps both a personal touch, and a high quality finish. The design and production process has led to the assembly of a group of skilled local manufacturers.
