When designing, what superpower would you like to have?

I think part of the passion of doing design is the journey, and arriving after both the ups and downs. I suspect having a super power related to design would be like using cheat codes in a computer game, it gets boring pretty quickly. It’s like most parts of life, the contrasts gives life colors, and the downs bring more value to the ups. It’s the same with doing design. From the panicky “designers block” to getting that vision and getting to a right track. No super power can surpass that feeling. Can I choose “flying”?

 

Which of your designs would you choose to survive a zombie attack?

Oh boy.. Not much to pick from there. It would have to be the base of a stool I designed a few months back. Wrap it with barbed wire (or maybe sharpen the edges) and I suspect it’ll be a mace with serious bludgeoning damage capacity.

 

If you could go to dinner with a designer, who would you go with?

Tony Stark (Ironman)

 

Would you prefer to travel to the future or to the past?

Both seem tempting, but I think I’d love to travel back (not too far), to gain inspiration from vintage designs. I love when vintage is incorporated elegantly to modern designs.

 

In what influential period of design would you like to be born?

I think not too far off where I’m already born. I mean, I’ve been a part of the technology boom from betamax videotapes to streaming, Philips G7000 (old console) to PlayStation, the first portable (it wasn’t exactly portable) IBM computer to today’s tablet, all the golf cars, fat tv’s to flatscreen..well you name it. I’ve been lucky to have been part of such a technology acceleration. Maybe I would have chosen 10-15 years before to be more mature and able to take in the designs in a different state than just as a kid being excited about the next big thing.

 

How would you describe yourself in 3 adjectives?

Patient, absent-minded and content.

 

If you wrote a book, what name would you put it?

“Prototipos estereotípicos”.

 

If you could learn to do something new, what would you choose?

Learn to speak French.

 

What is the last book you have read?

“Never Split The Difference” by Chris Voss.

 

What could we find in your garbage basket?

Well, being a recycling focused nation, I have three baskets, where it’s plastic (too much) in one, a crab shell in another and some paper in the third.

 

What is the best memory of your childhood?

Spending two weeks every summer in the Norwegian mountainside living in a caravan and fishing trout almost every day.

 

What is the rarest object in your room?

The rarest. Hm.. Maybe a self-made printed art piece of a digitally created rendering of a Vespa (1m x 0.8m). That’s at least one-of-a-kind .

 

What is your favorite conversation topic?

Anything within 3D (CAD, modeling, rendering). I’m a bit of a CAD/Visualization nerd.

 

If you could stay your whole life with the same age, what would it be?

29, before my joints started to ache, but also with a decent amount of confidence.

 

What do you value most in the design of a furniture wheel?

Obviously that it’s incorporated in the overall design, but also that it rolls when it’s supposed to (older office chairs with wheels that doesn’t roll gives me twitches).

 

What if you had to design an object to put wheels what would it be?

I think that would have to be a chair. So many possibilities and artistic freedom, not to mention visual directions and possible materials.
