FUGLEN recives the MARK FOR GOOD DESIGN 2011 by NDR!

Published: March 17, 2011, 8:19 p.m. By: fuglen, Comments: 3486

Last night Fuglen was honored for its service/business design! 


As the first reciver of this category within design ever. The fact that it is the whole concept, with vision, structure, visual communication, innovations and in the end the total impression that Fuglen gives to people that is judged makes us extra proud.

We wanted to make something that represented and respected the Norwegian Design history and the history of FUGLEN it selves. And now we are marked for life and an official part of Norwegian design history our selves.  For us this can not be better.  We will celebrate all this weekend with cocktails and coffee together with Rockberry, the design company that made the logo and technical web solutions that completed  our vision of FUGLEN  together with us.

Thank you, thank you so much to them and to the Norwegian Designcouncil. 

Read the juries criterias and see pictures from the application we sent in in full entry.

FUGLEN is the BAR of the year in Oslo 2010 according to Aftenposten

Published: Jan. 12, 2011, 9:12 p.m. By: fuglen, Comments: 5031

FUGLEN ER "Årets bar"

Quote from Aftenposten Oslo magasin OSLO PULS

Since the text is short and somewhat flattering and funny we give you all a direct translation:

"The bar of the Year"

It has rightfully been coffee- and teabusiness in the store in Pilestredet since 1963, but when Fuglen started serving cocktails in january this year, it was with love, passion and homemade cirups. Anything with fresh coconut and chilli?  Yes please! Will it take prox 30 min to make it? No problem. Hey, isn´t that Don Draper who is sitting ower there in the sofa?  Anyway the only thing we wish for now, is that it could be barnight a few more days of the week. "

The new room at Fuglen is finally finished. FORRETNINGEN, or the Store as it translates contains a showroom for the Vintage design objects that`s to small, fragile, rare or high in value to be put in to the busy Coffee and Cocktail Bar.

It´s also the place where the secret Cocktail recipes, Syrups and Juices are produced, the office for the managers, bartender and Barista course room, coffee cuppings, and storage. So its not only stunning. it works as well.

Welcome to have a look to all and everyone.

MONOCLE and Tyler Brûlé hosted their Christmas party at FUGLEN

Published: Dec. 12, 2010, 8:11 p.m. By: fuglen, Comments: 6079

Tyler Brûlé and the rest of the Monocle team celebrated christmas and Monocles December and January issue at Fuglen last weekend. (Except for those of the Monocle team that was stuck in the snow on Heathrow Airport.)

It was great a great night for us and it seemed so also for the hostes and all the readers and contacts they had invited to celebrate with them at our small place.

Tylers visit and Fuglen has in this week been mentioned in two interesting interviews with Tyler absolutely worth reading,  Aftenposten Aften and Dagbladet FREDAG. The one in Aftenposten was about city development in  "Kvadraturen" in Oslo. And now on Friday he was this weeks profile in FREDAG. Giving you an idea what Monocle is. The picture above comes from FREDAGs Profile-page.  (thanks for that Pål) 

We are honored and happy for the visit, and very glad they chose us.

So welcome back to Tyler, the Monocle team and to all and everyone. It was great to meet you all.

Love us at Fuglen
