Everything is possible for Our Lord and a mechanic! With this as a motto, Johs. Vestre established his first mechanical workshop in Haugesund in 1947. In difficult conditions in an old German-born, he followed the dream of starting something. From producing saw blades and simple pipe structures, Vestre soon delivered benches and playgrounds to parks across the country.
People + Form is the inspiring story of the industrial and design adventure Vestre, which through three generations has helped create social spaces for millions of people. With its uncompromising attitude towards design and quality, Vestre has shown that it is possible to build industry in Scandinavia, also for the future.
70 years after the start, the family company continues to be one of the leading manufacturers of urban furniture in Europe, where the goal is not just about furnishing the world – but making the world a better place!
