The Norwegian designer Mia Hamborg (b.1980), BA in furniture from the Steneby School of Crafts and Design in Gothenburg, 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 doesn’t follow any strict design tradition, but the joy of life is definitely her inspiration.
One of her most creative products is the playful Shuffle table designed for &Tradition, a turned wooden leg divided into pieces and splashed with colour. With it, Mia Hamborg gives new life to the old Nordic craft tradition of turning wood by adding the colour and playful forms from old painted wooden toys. The users are free to compose their own table from the turned pieces and with the measures that will fit their home perfectly, spreading an aura of joy.
Mia Hamborg has designed pieces for the following brands: &Tradition
