It all started in 1998. Three school matesfrom the School of Architecture and Design in Oslo started from scratch. “Some thought it was a silly and arrogant thing to do without much business experience.We thought it was brilliant and exciting and started off as a fearless, playful and responsible studio wanting to explore the power of design. Our slogan was ‘with play the land shall be built!’, a free interpretation of one of Norway’s oldest laws, the Frostathings Law, which says:‘With law the land shall be built’,” recalls Marius Andresen, CEO of K8 and the only original musketeer still left.
