Norway 100

Everyone complains about how ugly American greenbacks are, and I agree with them, but I find many banknotes from other countries to be indistinguishable from one another. The view of the Norwegian krone shown above suffers from that, in my opinion. The other side of the note though, as designed by Snøhetta is a different story. It’s a highly abstract, pixelated pattern inspired by ocean waves. It’s gorgeous.
