NHH Acting Room: – Because it is a museum, it is not natural to overuse it

When you see the School of Business and Economics from the outside, don’t expect to find a room like Stupet on the inside, says Frøystein Gjesdal, NHH professor and former dean.

The room called “Stupet” is furnished as a dining room and named after the villa to which the interior originally belonged. Wearing knitted sweaters, Kjernestyret snaps photos of their signature Christmas cards here.

They are among the few students who get away with it, says Elinor Arntzen Recivic, a senior counselor at NHH. Along with Gjesdal, I accepted K7 Bulletin’s request to tour the posh room, but little discussion.

Donation dining room

Gjesdal says that the villa of the same name was built in 1897 by businessman Konrad Mohr. As early as 1959, the venerable villa was demolished, on the grounds that the house was too large and impractical. One of Conrad Moore’s sons, Anton Mohr, taught at NHH as a professor, and was associated with the institution for several years.

Anton Mohr was the heir, who secured the dining room’s access to the Business School by donating it, Gisdahl says.

When the demolition took place, NHH was in the planning stage to move its headquarters from the center to Sandviken. Perhaps Anton Mohr thought the room could fit well here, Gisdahl says.

Spend half a million on Frieda Hansen curtains

When asked what things we should take special note of, Gjesdal points to the blinds.

It was woven by Frieda Hansen. He says that she was and still is a wonderful and world-renowned Norwegian artist.

It was only when we had KODE guests that I realized how special they are, says Gjesdal.

Ryssevik says they got blinds to protect the blinds from the sun.

After dialogue with professionals, we repaired and strengthened the blinds for half a million. She says we had to get most of the stock back in Stupet.

It’s a challenge to use things while taking care of them.

Gjesdal also highlights paintings at the other end of the room.

They are by Gerhard Munth. He also says that his work hangs in the National Museum as well. in A catalog is available on the National Library website, we can read about many things in Stupet, as well as the story of Conrad and Anton Mohr. Stupet’s largest painting is by Gerhard Monti, showing King Sverre and the Birkebeiners on their way down Drivdalen in Trøndelag.

Gerhard Monti was responsible for most of the dining room’s decoration, says Gisdahl.

– Usually those in positions of trust in the NHHS who can access

Ryssevik says NHH is the host when it comes to using Stupet.

Among the students, she says, only those who hold positions of trust in the NHHS have access to them.

They do not enter alone. They ask if they can borrow the room, then we make an assessment.

Why not open the room so that all NHH students can see it?

Ryssevik defends the choice by saying that there may be corrosion in the room.

She says it’s a museum, it’s not normal to overuse it.

The room can accommodate 100 people. It may take some organization if everyone is given a tour.

Could more availability be relevant in the future?

Ryssevik replies that this issue has not been raised before, and that any rounds will depend on the students’ interest in it.

In that case, it would be interesting to see if there is a demand for something like that, she says.

Today, Recivic says the room is used for closed events.

Stupet is the room NHH welcomes outside guests, so called acting events.

She points to the door that leads to the kitchen.

For example, if we have guests from abroad, or the royal family comes to visit us, we have lunch or dinner here, she says.

In addition, the room is used in connection with the 60th birthdays of NHH employees, and when they retire.

Recivik says there are never open events here

Gjesdal notes that the room has been used frequently in the past.

Always when you have a distinguished guest, there was brunch at Stupet, he says.

Also regarding the GCSE for exchange students, the room has been in use for a long time.

Now that they’re many, they’re using other places instead, says Gjesdal.

Everything here is valuable

Gisdal says that Konrad Mohr made a fortune importing grain from Eastern Europe, and that he was a very wealthy man. Mohr was a close friend of both Christian Michaelsen and Christopher Lumcoll.

Perhaps he was the one with the most money. You will find a statue of him in Byparken. Gisdal says the three have been on trips together around Europe.

He points to a high back wooden bench, and says it’s called “The King’s Bench.”

Moore was married three times, and his last wife, who lived for many years after him, was a close friend of King Haakon, Gisdahl says.

King Haakon often visited Stupet, he had such long legs that he could sit on a bench and at the same time reach the ground with his feet. Few can do this, he says.

Gisdahl says Emperor Wilhelm II, who was Emperor of Germany during World War I, visited their home often as well.

Emperor Wilhelm and Conrad had a fairly close relationship, he says.

The thing with the most economic value, says Recifek, should probably be the wall-hung cabinet between the windows.

She says he should be hanging in church.

But everything here is valuable. The shelf above the cabinet in the corner is older.
