INTERVIEW

Yvonne Bjørgen BY

What is important to you as an interior designer?

To facilitate solutions that optimize both the client’s and users' surroundings in a way that gives them a positive, engaging and coherent experience of their every day working environment. It’s important to assist and involve the clients in a manner that gives them a sense of ownership, that way they will have a certain connection with the final result.

How would you describe your strengths?

I like to develop concepts, create coherence and identity, and enjoy a wide variety of tasks, from drawing and developing well thought out solutions to being in direct contact with the clients and people who implement the various elements within a project. I’m very thorough and place strong emphasis on monitoring details whilst gaining extensive knowledge about the projects and clients I work with.

Which aspects of your job do you appreciate the most?

The fact that I get to create functional and positive solutions for so many people and facilitate experiences that hopefully spice up their lives. And last, but by no means least, the fact that I get to perform a wide variety of tasks in my work, which are an important and endless source of inspiration and joy for me.
