About Freyja

Hi I'm a designer who creates for the mind. Much of my work is aimed at facilitating privacy and mindfulness with-in our increasingly hectic and connected world. I explore this though both traditional furniture and cutting edge technologies, creating spaces and tools for increased metacognition and mental wellbeing.

I graduated from 3D Design at Brighton University in 2011. During my degree, I won a scholarship to Nagoya University of Arts, which provided an inspiring insight to Japanese design culture, a core continuing source of inspiration in both my personal and professional life.

My HUSH chair is in production by Raskl Design and has been part of multiple exhibitions and articles. In 2012 I was awarded the London Design Museum Residency and my past clients include Selfridges and Unilever.

I have recently returned to London after two years living and working in Tokyo. During her stay I attained JLPT3 Japanese Language proficiency and spent time working with Nendo and Kengo Kuma whilst completing the prestigious Daiwa Scholarship. I was awarded the Furniture Makers Guild Bursary to undertake my studies at the RCA.

I believes that rather then passively allowing technology to change us by shortening our attention span, isolating us in echo chambers and exploiting our addictive tendencies, we must pro-actively harness it to shape our minds, and so our future, for the better.

I am looking for a business minded person with a passion for sustainability and beautiful product design to work with. I would like to re-brand into a collaborative studio with the right person. Please look at my website if you would like to know more:
