Sigve Knutson (b. 1991, Norway) is an experimental designer based in between Oslo and Eindhoven. He obtained an MA in Contextual Design at Design Academy Eindhoven in 2016. His practice is motivated by a drawing mentality and a fascination for the intuitive and playful rather than the smoothened and planned. Through a series of methods and material combinations that allows for intuition and spontaneous actions, he aims to make his objects in the same free way as he would make a drawing.
Sigve Knutson explores materials and techniques that share the same qualities as his drawings. Hammering metal is a way to shape a flat sheet of any metal, he was interested in the act of using force to make something flat into a volume and using an outline as a mold to control the shape of the volume. Traces of the production become the surface of the objects as each piece is hand-hammered into its shape.
