This new series has been produced by Swedish designer Jenny Nordberg, a designer who is known for her research-led approach to making objects - something which has been key to the development of the Powder Vase for Hem. Produced as a signed, limited-edition of 15 pieces featuring three different shapes, the vases are made from sheet steel which Nordberg folds and welds by hand. Unique to the pieces is the unexpected, brutal and vivid surface treatment that Nordberg has developed through experimentation with powder-coating in her studio. Whilst powder-coating is most commonly used to achieve a uniform surface treatment, here Nordberg uses it to achieve an expressive decoration.

“Everything I do is based on strong political ideas. I don’t believe in global mass-production or in the current form of capitalism. Throughout my career, I have turned down numerous collaborations where I didn't see a shared value of sustainable production or consumption, Instead, I focus my attention on projects that are long lasting – those that reclaim materials and are engaged locally.” Jenny Nordberg

Hem’s decorative accessories collection commissioned by Modern Design Review intends to present objects that are the essence of their makers. For Jenny Nordberg this has meant a work that demonstrates her commitment to her industrially-inspired workshop production and is a continuation of her ideas-led, yet ultimately covetable, collection of works.
