Nora Furuholmen and Joakim Moe Røisland won The Hedda Award 2007 for best stage design and lighting design for Ghosts at Hålogaland Theatre. The production was produced in 2006.

The Hedda Jury gave the following reason for the award:

"The two winners' near minimalist stage image supports the intentions of the director, while making them clearer. A well-known drama is playing out in timeless surroundings with actors in stylised costumes: All that is not in dire need for the performance to advance has been taken off the stage, on which refined switches between light and shadows makes the stage design's fundamental element the very symbol of the drama it reveals as well as veils.

The winners of the year are Nora Furuholmen and Joakim Moe Røisland for stage design, costumes and lighting for Ghosts at Hålogaland Theatre."

Nora Furuholmen has been represented at exhibitions in New York, Washington, Tokyo and Copenhagen, and has won several awards for her furniture design.

Furuholmen has collaborated with director Øyvind Osmo Eriksen several times, including at Mio, My Son at Hålogaland Theatre (2006), Betre utan ball* (Better without the ball) at The Norwegian Theatre (2007) and Ghosts at Hålogaland Theatre (2006).
