Last week it was revealed that Oslo-based design agency Snøhetta had jointly won a competition to redesign the Norwegian banknote. The Central Bank of Norway announced on October 7 two winner proposals for the design of the new banknotes. Snøhetta’s design will be the foundation for the backsides of the notes, while The Metric System’s design will be the starting point for the fronts.
