Rintala Eggertsson Architects was founded in 2007 by the Finnish architect Sami Rintala and the Icelandic architect Dagur Eggertsson. Today the office consists of Norwegian architect and partner Vibeke Jenssen in addition to Rintala and Eggertsson. The office bases its activities on teaching, furniture design, public art projects, architecture and planning. Important feature in Rintala Eggertsson's practice are their 1:1 building workshops with students and clients.
Occupying the space between architecture and public art, their work has been installed in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the MAXXI Museum in Rome and in the Venice Biennale, and has been published extensively, such as in A+U, Wallpaper, Architectural Review, Blueprint, Domus and The New York Times. Their work has been described as narrative and conceptual. Resulting work is a layered interpretation of the physical, mental and poetic resources of the site.
