The owners of the very popular and charming cafe Liebling are these days opening a second place around the corner. It´s named after a popular children's song, Kanskje kommer kongen ( Maybe the king will come). Lovely as they are, they want to unite the city's young population with the elderly by running a cafe inside a retirement home. What´s not to like, I think the king should come!

I’m a British citizen currently studying product design at the Akershus Oslo University College. At the age of 4 my parents took me to Lanzarote, which was a pretty funky place to grow up! I moved to Oslo 11 years ago, where I worked as Harbourmaster at the Royal Norwegian Yachtclub until starting studying. I haven’t really found any nieche yet, but I enjoy trying to incorporate feelings into my work and trying to design an experience instead of just a product. I’m very inspired by my surroundings. I suppose I’m on some kind of creative journey at the moment, but I don’t really have a clue what I’m doing or where I’m going to end up. I use humour as a defense mechanism, worry too much and cry when I watch soppy movies.
