ABOUT

She is currently developing new ideas and prototypes in her new design studio in Torggata, Oslo. Proud member of Fold Oslo.

Her objects are developed intuitively and experimentally, in an aesthetic interaction between the hand and the machine. Her objects is often seen as rarities or unika, where quirky aesthetics is her field of interest. Inspired by the nature and its naturals materials, shapes and forms meet together in new interpretations.
