"Mechanical poetry based on enduring ideas."

Jonas Forsman

Grew up in Småland, a region in southern Sweden famous for furniture production. Learnt from early age to save on resources by using as little as possible and make the most out of it. This has become a guide line for me as a designer also. I start from the function and see if I can solve it in a new way, often by using different materials or new mechanical solutions. Then I cut away all things not necessary and let the function speak for itself.

Studied industrial design engineering in Gothenburg where I now have my studio. Awarded Red dot several times and Design S for my products.
