Anders Ljungberg

Swedish silversmith Anders Ljungberg’s work is an investigation of functional objects and our relationship to them. He peels back layers of everyday use to reveal something hidden under the blanket of habitual, daily actions. He says, ‘I‘m describing a situation where user, room and object are elements in a story that hopefully can say something significant about our time.’ 

Anders Ljungberg was born in Stockholm in 1966. He studied at Konstfack, where he has been Professor of Crafts since 2016. Anders was previously professor and department head at Oslo National College of the Arts and  senior lecturer at Konstfack. His work is widely exhibited and can be seen in the Marzee Collection, the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm, the Röhsska Museum in Gothenburg and the Norwegian Museum of Decorative Arts and Design in Oslo.
