JENNY NORDBERG (b. 1978) is an industrial designer (MFA) and based in Skåne. Nordberg works investigative and interdisciplinary to expand the contemporary view of design and the role of the designer. Regardless of whether it is an experimental, conceptual or commercial project, she is driven by a search for alternatives and counter-strategies to irresponsible mass production. Stylistically, her work is characterized by an astute combination of brutalism and minimalism, often with humour and chance as important elements. Jenny Nordberg's work, which moves in the field between design and art, focuses on how we produce and consume today, how we have done it historically and how this can be done differently in the future. By exploring issues such as these, Nordberg wants to change the conditions for the design field and encourage designers to take a more committed position.
