Snøhetta designs stars for the Norwegian Cancer Society’s 10th anniversary Christmas Star Campaign

Nov 15, 2022

Every Christmas, the Norwegian Cancer Society raises money for lifesaving cancer research through their Christmas Star Campaign. This year, the campaign celebrates its 10th anniversary and Snøhetta is honored to have designed the stars.

The Christmas Star Campaign has been selling decorative stars to hang in the windows of hospitals, businesses, and households in Norway since 2012, raising an impressive 200 million Norwegian Kroner on the campaign alone.

For this year’s campaign, Snøhetta has designed a collection of three new stars, meant to give hope and represent the concept of time. The smallest one is a paper star that can be used for decorating the Christmas tree but also functions as a to-and-from note for Christmas presents. A larger paper star is mainly meant to decorate the windows at hospitals but can also be bought for businesses and private households, and the third is a limited edition, handmade candle holder in brass – made by the traditional and highly skillful artisans at TH. Marthinsen’s factory in Tønsberg, Norway.

100% of the income generated from the sales of the Christmas Stars goes to the Norwegian Cancer Society’s lifesaving cancer research.
