Andra Vågens Slöjd - Since 2010
My name is Jonatan Hedetoft i was born and raised in Malmö, Sweden.
My journey started with crafts in a young age, i had a hard time in school so creativity was my strength. My knowledge is across many different fields. The latest years i have been awarded for my work in many many ways everything from an amount of articles and interviews to culture prizes and design awards.
I work with furniture design and interior architecture towards the healing environments for psychiatric care and mental health. The fundamental piece in the work is the contact with people that suffer! There is a lot of information to use that the healthy population of the people takes for granted. I think that it today can be a bad idea to only look at comfort and ergonomy! We lock ourself instead of realising that it is from the bad and the mistake that we learn. So than we may need to focus on the negative aspects.
My main mission is to break walls and stigmas, build bridges and solutions to fill the need for the people with mental health issues.
