Siren Elise Wilhelmsen is a Norwegian product designer based between Bergen and Berlin. She produces objects that challenge the concept of traditional functionality and transform natural materials into intricate mechanical objects. Through her practice she seeks to find “a conceptual way to stimulate ideas and discussions around our everyday objects, rituals and culture.”

So far that’s meant the production of a portable chair that can be strapped around trees, hand-charged dynamo lamps for portable eco-friendly lighting around the house and a clock that demonstrates the passage of time by mechanically knitting a scarf throughout the year, creating a unique piece of apparel at the end of the process. Altogether it’s a stunning body of work that demonstrates a thoughtfulness and attention to detail, setting her apart from many of her peers.

You should definitely spend some time on her website…
