Norwegian designer Mia Hamborg was born in 1980. She received a BA in furniture from the Steneby School of Crafts and Design in Gothenburg and has a passion for order, functionality and colour. With her joyous and playful furniture she continues an old Nordic tradition for wood turning and brings new life into the material. She compliments designer Sir Terence Conran for his acknowledgment that modern people often live with limited space and therefore making storage a design issue. She doesn't follow any strict design tradition, but the joy of life is definitely her inspiration.
