His work is characterised by a refined understanding of shape and material. He received the gold medal at the 1959 craft fair So wohnt Europa in Munich for work including the dining set Form. Around 1960, Afdal’s furniture design took on a more architectural style, exemplified by armchair Broadway and hunting chair Hunter, two of his artistic highlights from the period. Considered among Afdal’s classics are Krobo, a multi-purpose bench, Times liquor cabinet and Minerva range of conference furniture. Afdal also functioned as Artistic Director of Bruksbo furniture workshop at Plus in Fredrikstad.
