Nirvan

Nirvan is a Swedish designer, well-known for his tasteful furniture exhibitions and his speeches around the country about ecological furniture. He is the founder of Norrgavel, a furniture company which has five shops in Sweden and which uses only materials that respect the environment. Nirvan was educated as an architect, and then changed to carpentry in his search for what he calls “the existential dimension of design.” He has spent months studying the shape of spoons and other utensils of past cultures, looking for a “silent design” where pieces of furniture become a discrete but exquisite background to life. Nirvan is a meditator and graduate of the Risk Therapist Training.
