What is the story behind your motion design project Shaping the Extraordinary?
Inspired by my apprenticeship at Fritz Hansen, Obviously, I wanted to convey a story that shows the fine craftsmanship of the Series 7 chairs in an abstract and hopefully elegant way. It shows how it goes from a tree in nature to the workshop and how it's sliced into veneer pieces and put together and ends up in a living room. A real cabinetmaker would probably argue that the things happening in the project are not exactly in chronological order, but the important part is that the viewer gets the gist of it and gets to feel how the extraordinary design is ‘shaped’ up.
I also chose to do this project because it could be fun to present something different to my colleagues at Fritz Hansen compared to the marketing material we usually do. It’s a personal project, and Fritz Hansen is, therefore, not officially associated with it in any way.
