Danish designer Jonas Edvard uses seaweed to create sustainable furniture such as chairs and lamps. He gathers his materials directly from the Danish coast of Copenhagen, turning this fresh, sustainable substance into designer furniture.
The young artist works and lives in Copenhagen. In all his work, he takes an alchemist’s approach to design, experimenting with natural resources and creating products whose striking materiality, used in a brand-new context, gives new life to the object itself. Edvard is committed to exploring the possibilities of sustainable design, and he pursues his work with a strong focus on the aesthetic value and functionality of raw materials, investigating the history of their use and the future of their existence.
