To Studio Dejawu, designing is a mix of something personal and something general. It is about striking a balance between something a bit narrative, a bit poetic, a bit mechanical, and all the while finding that chemistry that can only be created with a crafted touch.
Originally from China, designer Qian Jiang moved to Scandinavia to combine his knowledge of technical design with a softer design approach. The work of Qian Jiang is a true meeting of Eastern industrial design and Scandinavian handcrafted furniture traditions. During his studies, he spend two years working with the design team at Normann Copenhagen. Currently, he lives in Stockholm working in his own atelier, Studio Dejawu.
“Design to me is like writing a diary. It relates to my memories of people and fond moments. In a sense, my work is very personal. The result is like creating a memory container; I translate what I have experienced into objects others can relate to.”
Qian Jiang holds a Bachelor in Industrial Design from Jiangnan University, China as well as a Master of Industrial Design at Lund University in Sweden.
