Jakob Berg (1958–2008) was inspired by all the shapes that caught his eye. Design was always a natural part of him. His basic idea about ergonomic shapes and his choice of materials were to a great extent determined by his social reflection and all-embracing attitude to life. He was born in Roskilde, Denmark in 1958 and qualified as an industrial design from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 1987. Shapes and ideas were always in Jakob Berg’s thoughts, and new projects always lay on the drawing board. From the outset in the 1990s, he cooperated with a number of Danish and international companies and received several distinctions for his work.
