Jenny Nordberg is an industrial designer MFA based in Malmö, Sweden, who works exploratory and interdisciplinary to expand the contemporary notion of design, and of the designer. Whether an experimental, conceptual or commercial project, her practice is always driven by a search for alternatives and counter-strategies to irresponsible mass production. Stylistically, her work is characterized by brutalism and minimalism cleverly combined, often leaning on chance as an important element.
Jenny: “During the summer of 2014 while working with the project 3 to 5 Seconds – Rapid handmade production I researched the making of mirrors. The process and outcome was so thrilling that I had to continue working with this traditional method of making mirrors. The process I’m using was invented in the 19th century and is resulting in a thin layer of silver (Ag) on the glass surface”.
