He published the first monograph on Christopher Dresser (Phaidon 1990, new edition 1993) and in 2002 he was responsible for the exhibition and catalogue Christopher Dresser in Japan, which toured museums in Japan. Recently he co-curated the exhibition Gerhard Munthe - Enchanted Design, and he has been responsible for more than 5o exhibitions and has published extensively on design history issues in Norway and worldwide.
