INTERVIEW

Juni Glessing Hanstvedt BY

Mona Jacobsen

What’s important for you as an interior designer?

I believe in a balance between human needs and our planet’s resources. Nature has a positive effect upon us, and I would like to see qualities such as rhythm, movement and possibility for reflection brought into interior design. We can create spaces that actively reduce stress in a hectic working day. It’s important for me to deliver what I regard as truly genuine – something I believe in. We are aware that many building products are not good for people or the environment, and this requires deliberate and well-informed choices to be made by interior designers, as well as our clients and manufacturers in general.

What do you like working with best?

It’s fascinating to explore and find solutions best suited to a client’s needs, and I enjoy working on the physical layout of a scheme. A good plan is the key to a good workplace. Additionally, there’s plenty of scope in forms and materials for creating spaces where the client feels at home. And, finally, it’s a great feeling if you succeed!
