Lawrence Malstaf won The Hedda Award 2013 in the best visual design category for The Tin Drum, Hålogaland Theatre.

The Hedda jury gave the following reason:

"Onstage is an exciting installation radiating calm and order, while being open to interpretation. The stage design changes in beat with the rhythm of the production. Calm becomes disturbance, order becomes chaos. Nothing is purely decorative; all the elements have dramatic functions. Not least the stage design invites an unusual subtle interaction between actors and stage design, providing the performance with energy. The stage design also has challenged the traditional relationship between stage and auditorium, and has created a surprising, well-functioning new theatre venue. The award winner has, with artistic imagination, architectonic confidence and deep understanding for the particular character of theatre created an innovative, modern stage design. This year's best stage design/best costume design award goes to Lawrence Malstaf."
