About the designer


studio Björn Steinar

Björn Steinar is an enthusiastic designer who strives towards bringing around societal change through his design practice. Björn is from a generation of product designers; designing into a world over flooded with products and useless temptations. The world is in dire need of solutions to an array of problems, which is why Björn tends towards what he calls an anti-capitalistic design method; honest design practice with a real purpose.

Recent works include Banana Story - an explanation of the world condition from the standpoint of a banana, Catch of the day – fighting food waste by handcrafting vodka from dumpster dived fruits and Skógarnytjar - mobilizing Icelandic designers and foresters to create a culture around utilization of a new resource in a previously woodless country. The three research-driven projects echo Björn’s vision of using design as a medium for conveying ideas. Strong narratives and expressive simple solutions, combined with close collaborations, place his local context as a metaphor for the world in a solution-oriented dialogue. Always proposing a solution, no matter how complex the problem.

Curated by

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
