Strek is a creative collective founded by four Norwegian designers with a dedicated approach to exploring the unknown and improving the known. Their work can be described through a respectful use of materials and a hands on approach to development. They mainly work towards the domestic field of product design with a desire to develop new experiences and useful relations between product and user. The four designers met in Oslo and Akershus University College and began working together in 2008. What started out as a collaboration between students has now resulted in numerous exhibitions including in Milan, Stockholm, London, Oslo and Paris.
