How can design challenge the use of materials to find new expressions? In this talk, three designers discuss how they expand on traditional understandings of materials and how it helps them break free from conformity within the design process.

Irene Nordli (b. 1967, Oslo) works with ceramic sculptures and large-scale works experimenting with animal and human hybrids in various degrees of abstraction.

Sigve Knutson (b. 1991, Norway) is an experimental designer and his practice is motivated by a fascination for the intuitive and playful rather than a method and aesthetic that is smooth and planned.

Turi Heisselberg Pedersen (b. 1965, Denmark) is working with hand-crafted sculptural ceramic pieces, characterized by their matte surfaces and rhythmic lines. At CHART Design, Pedersen is presenting a new series of vases made for Kähler Design.
