Elin Josefine Olsson. Designer from Sweden, live in Vietnam. Work with craftsman.
With my nomad design studio, I have a vision to create products using the craft technique and the visual language of the area where I am work. Since 2012, I live in Vietnam and work with different artisans, I moved here because I want to be a part of the production.
My design is a mix of the inspiration I get here in Vietnam and my Scandinavian design heritage.
One of the projects I am working on is in close collaboration with a small group Pako folks who is an ethnic minority group in Vietnam's central highlands and the Dutch organisation MCNV. A project where we produce products in bamboo and rattan, a production that started to try to increase their income.
