«Limited edition» is an art project by Håkon Forfod Sønneland, in cooperation with top artists and crafters in Norway.

The project ridicules the business world’s use of «limited editions»: First, they decide not to make too many copies of a product, and then they use the limitation as a argument to sell more.
With the surprising use of materials that are not appropriate for their use, the artist aimes to make people rethink the materials and use of everyday objects that surrounds us. He also want his art to be entertaining.
