ABOUT

Anna Maria Øfstedal Eng (b.1993) recently graduated with a Master in Product design from Oslo Metropolitan University, where she have explored sculptural and functional aesthetic expressions in local materiality, such as spalted birch and Norwegian blue clay. She is currently developing new ideas and prototypes in her workshop in Oslo. Proud member of Fold Oslo.

Her objects are developed intuitively and experimentally, in an aesthetic interaction between the hand and the machine. Inspired by the nature and its naturals materials, shapes and forms meet together in new interpretations.
