Norges Bank has announced that designs by two Oslo studios have been chosen to feature on Norway’s new banknotes, which will come into circulation in 2017. Snøhetta’s design for the reverse of the notes features a pixellated image of the country’s coastline, the amount of distortion depicting the wind speed as it whips up with each denomination…

Earlier this year, eight designers were invited to submit proposals for Norway’s new banknote design on the theme of ‘the sea’. Today, the central bank of Norway announced that designs by The Metric System and Snøhetta will be used on the obverse (full set shown bottom of post) and reverse sides of the banknotes, respectively.
