How to order?

Great design direct from the makers

Vestre delivers design products throughout the world direct from its own production facilities in Norway and Sweden, without any intermediaries to drive up the price. The normal delivery period is 3-5 weeks from order. Longer delivery may apply to special projects and Glasscrete planters.

All products are supplied either ready-assembled or as close as possible to full assembly, along with simple instructions for assembly and bases.

Vestre’s head office in Oslo handles the Norwegian market, while the company’s sales office in Torsby handles the Swedish market and exports. In France we are represented by our joint venture partner, Pro Urba.
