Inspiration

Inspiration

The urban chaos of New York. Classic Japanese movies. Boyhood dreams of old cars and tools. Classical Danish furniture of the 1950s. To Jens, inspiration comes from a large variety of sources.

He’s deeply fascinated by Danish wooden chairs made by furniture design icons such as Hans Wegner and Børge Mogensen. The wooden material transforms with use over time, almost becoming one with its owner – and to Jens Ansø the process of patina and age has an extreme beauty to it.

NJORD is inspired, not just by creating the perfect kitchen knife, but by bringing forth a reality – forged from wood and steel – upon which Jens has created his life, philosophy, and business.
