Jennifer Cena is a designer from Norway who was born and raised in the Norwegian mountains. This has given her a very special relationship with nature, which she repeatedly reflects in her designs through expressions and choice of materials.
She was born in 1979 and has a strong background from the School of Art and Design in Bergen. There is no doubt that she has a distinct sense of aesthetics and a penchant for natural materials and organic forms that is rarely seen elsewhere.
Even before she finished her education, she had a whole series of her beautiful furniture in production, which helps to emphasize her ability to be present, innovative and current in her designs.
She is the designer behind the UMI series, and developed its prototypes in connection with Bergen Art and Design School’s exhibition in Green House during the Stockholm Furniture Light Fair in 2016. Since then, the series has grown and has now resulted in daybed, coffee table, stools and benches in both oak and wild ash.
