Kristina Kjær. Born 1988, lives and works in Aarhus, DK.

I received my education at VIA Teko Design & Business in Herning, DK. 

My curiosity keeps pushing me forward in my search for new and exiting ways to use material, techniques and details. The inspiration for my design is reflections of everyday-life and a passion for simple and honest design solutions. I appreciate using natural and sustainable materials when creating new designs. 

I am passionate about creating meaningful solutions using a strategic design approach and creative methods for all kinds of challenges.

I primarily work in furniture - and product design,  but I am open to all kinds of work - big or small scale.
