Artist talk with Mimi Norrgren & Jeffery Rogers

Mimi and Jeff

Thoughtful Intentions

Åka Studio makes design objects that engage with care on a primal level and this year's theme was already staring back at them. With the core of the latest collection being a set of mirrors, playing with the notion of care is regularly at the tip of their thoughts.

They aspire to ignite their passions in others through a commitment to making work that absorbs and reflects facets of their immediate environment and a sense of responsibility for taking care of the natural world through sustainable material choices.

One can glance through a painstakingly crafted, purposely imperfect mirror frame, simultaneously promoting a sense of self care and of selfless duty to the environment. 

Through texture they reference the serene and archaic natural elements found here in Skåne. 

Mimi brings her love of sculptural form and texture to the Studio, honed during her years studying in the UK at Central Saint martins, The Ruskin School of Fine Art, Oxford and the Royal College of Art. As an artist Mimi has exhibited internationally.  

Jeffrey, having studied art history at Bristol University, went on to experience many years of practice in art studios engaged in carpentry, mould making and glass work. 

Åka are Mimi Norrgren and Jeffrey Rogers, artists and designers recently relocated to Sweden from the UK. Their creative journey has culminated in a determination to build a business based upon sculptural integrity and sustainable material choices.
