DESIGN, BUSINESS & INNOVATION


Illustration: Snøhetta: Beauty of Boundaries (detail) via It's Nice That.


Rebecca Fulleylove writes in It's Nice That: "Norway’s Norges Bank have just announced new designs that will make their way into circulation in 2017 and boy are they beautiful. Two designers have been selected for each side of the notes with The Metric System’s design providing a starting point for the front and Oslo-based Snøhetta for the reverse.
It’s the reverse designs that have got us really excited, not just because they look fab but because of the concept behind them. Titled Beauty of Boundaries, Snøhetta’s notes use images from Norway’s costal landscape and translates them into pixellated, colour-blocked snapshots."
