Born in 2011 in Norway, “By” was founded by Sigurd Strøm, Benjamin Stenmarck and Henning Romero. All 3 founders bring wide experience in the melting pot of Scandinavian Art and Design, and share a sharply focused vision on what “By” should achieve: We will find brilliant design ideas and bring them to life. Our task is to challenge the mind and take Scandinavian design to the next level.
While we have a regional focus to find the best up coming designers and products from Norway and surrounding countries, our ambition is global, to take these designs to an iconic level around the world. Quality is always our primary objective. We only take a very select few designs into the prototype and production stage and each one must share the same single quality, that is the ability to shake the design world.
As we have already seen with the launch of our first signature product, Imeuble, Scandinavia remains at the forefront of contemporary, thought provoking design. Imeuble has swiftly gone from the front cover of Wall Paper magazine, to the tips of many tongues at the Stockholm furniture fair, soon followed by being customised for Architects offices, Institutions and designer hotel lobbies in many different countries.
By Corporation looks forward to bringing many more iconic pieces to the world of design and art over the coming years.
