  • Inspiration for this collection comes from the Moiré phenomenon. A visual effect that occurs when two patters with, for example, stripes are layered on top of each other, and a feeling of movement appears. The stripes and the movements in the design gives associations to the lines and the speed found on an athletics track. Bislett, Oslo's main athletics track, has a local anchorage for me, and thereof the name Bislett - designer Hallgeir Homstvedt.
