About Jonas Edvard
Jonas Edvard was born in 1982. He currently lives and works in Copenhagen (Denmark).
Jonas Edvard graduated from the Royal Danish Academy, School of Design with a MA in product design. With an alchemist’s approach to the design process, Edvard experiments with natural ressources and creates products where the perception of the material places the object in a new context. With a renewed focus on the aesthetic value and functionality of raw materials, Jonas Edvard explores the possibilities of sustainable design. His work is focused on a research into raw and natural materials, the history of their use and the future of their existence. Through material experimentation, Jonas creates new material combination, which interacts with our understanding of shape and the life cycles of materials in our daily life.
As part of the Curio exhibition, Jonas Edvard will present « Mhandmade » (2018).
