JENS FAGER ON THE DESIGN
"RAW is a product family based on rough and intuitive interpretations of iconic everyday objects. Every piece is unique because they are all made of a piece of wood carved by hand with a band saw machine. With their strong yet iconic look they can easily be placed anywhere in your home, at the office or at the restaurant."

ON HIS DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
Everything is different. The core of my philosophy that permeates all is to treat every single product in an honest way and to find their main function. Secondly I always want a sense of humour, surrealism or poetry in my work. The end result is a natural product for the consumer.
ON NEW NORDIC DESIGN
The strength of Nordic design is a natural learning and understanding of everyday needs. During the summer we need the functional carafe for serving chilled lemonade and in wintertime we need a cosy lamp. The strength of Nordic designers are that they have a critical eye for aesthetics and do not leave much to randomness. This brings beauty to the products.
