ELEEN HALVORSEN has a conceptual approach to design and by experimenting with unconventional patternmaking, construction and materials she is constantly seeking interesting new juxtapositions. The result of this constant search for contrast and novelty, together with her distinct aesthetic, is essential in positioning Eleen Halvorsen as a dark minimalistic, yet eccentric line.
