Jakob Jørgensen mainly works with wood and likes to explore possible new expressions in what is, mildly put, a thoroughly tested material. Jakob Jørgensen carefully ponders the issues he addresses, and once he has a clear idea he goes into his workshop where he proceeds to create models and other experiments to develop an idea for a finished product. Jakob Jørgensen aims for objects with a sculptural expression. In his design he strives to create an expression that possesses the same depth as a work of art but which also fits naturally into everyday life as a functional object.

Jakob Jørgensen has exhibited at Galerie Maria Wettergren in Paris and taken part in the Cabinetmakers’ Autumn Exhibition since 2009. In 2011 he received the Bodum Design Award together with Line Depping; in connection with this award he exhibited at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. Also in 2011 he was a finalist in IFDA (International Furniture Design Fair Asahikawa) in Japan. Most recently, Jakob Jørgensen received a Wallpaper* Design Award in 2012.
