Welcome to NUET!

C004943-R1-01-24.JPG

NUET is a collaborative platform run by the Norwegian duo Nora Marie Vatland and Martine Aamodt Hess, who are currently based in London. The website was founded on a shared passion for writing and the desire to create a space for self-expression; through art, personal style, conscious living, and interviews with up and coming artists that deserve more attention in the media.

As a result, this website came to life in September 2015. Now it has become a space formed by creatives from all over the world that are sharing their art, experiences, inspiration and voice to create positive change. Together we aim to build an empowering community by writing about everything from activism and mental health to sustainable swaps and submitted artworks.

Now, over to the name; "Nuet" is a Norwegian word that translates to "the present moment". To us, this word has a double meaning. It reminds us to be present in life, but at the same time reminding us to be conscious about our impact on the future, so that those who come after us can enjoy their nuet in the best way. We want to honor the moment, and the power of each present and passing moment. In 5 minutes you can book a one-way ticket. In 4 minutes you can lose interest in a conversation. In 3 minutes you can listen to someone's heart beat 300 times. In two minutes you can listen to a song. In one minute you can call someone and leave a voice mail. Right now you can change your life completely.

Nuet wear

Second hand + vintage

Nuet Wear is our very own line of carefully selected vintage and pre-loved clothing. By opening this online store, we want to contribute to putting fast fashion, child labor and unethical trading to an end, and also encourage self-expression through style. Wear the pieces with fierceness, boldness and softness.

This is true style, this is true self-expression; it is unique, ethical & sustainable.

Meet the team

Nora Marie: Co-founder

Briefly tell something about yourself:

19 years old. First year journalism student at the university of Kingston, London. I consider myself an amateur writer, and my love for the environment is deep rooted within me, and I will always try to become more sustainable in everything I do. I work at an elderly center for individuals with severe dementia, which has been a huge eye opener to how I see the world.



Zodiac sign?

Aquarius. A horrible lier, independent and not afraid to make mistakes.
 

Plans for the future:

I’m crossing my fingers that we’re able to work with Nuet as a full-time job in a few years. Next year I am also hoping to fulfill 14 year old Noras dream and enrolling in a yoga teacher training during the summer. Volunteering at a deaf school have always been a goal, so being ASL fluent is something I’m always working towards. Joining the van life community and eventually create a tiny home is also a goal which I hold dear to my heart.

Martine:Co-founder

Briefly tell something about yourself:

18 years old and first year journalism student at Kingston University. Writing to me is both a way of processing and exploring. It usually centers around the sustainable living, art and mental wellbeing, as those are all topics that's very close to my heart. Other than that I love to get creative, practice yoga and shoot analog photography.
 

Zodiac sign?

Scorpio. Definitely stubborn, independent and passionate. 


Plans for the future:

My dream is to tell stories that have the power to leave a mark (whether that means being a correspondent in the middle east or keep on exploring sustainability). Right now I’m studying journalism in London and hope that I will continue to learn - and eventually be able to explore the world, its fascinating cultures and incredible minds, through my job. I have a lot of dreams, but right now I’m focusing on living my life as consciously as possible.
