There are many positive emotions related to Advent and Christmas. When the Norwegian designer team Torsteinsen Design released its Advent Star in 2011, it immediately became a popular decoration object. Hanging an advent star is a kind of ritual for many, just like decorating a Christmas tree.

“A hands-on approach combined with many years of experience, lets us design innovative, functional, and cost effective solutions for our clients,” says the designers.
