Born in Sweden in 1965, Thomas Meyerhoffer is a creator and visionary. After earning a degree in Industrial Design from Art Center, he started his journey with an internship at Porsche, only to Go West to California for IDEO. It was there Meyerhoffer was introduced to the idea of giving objects meaning through its form, working with Naoto Fukasawa. He further formed these notions at Apple working alongside Sir Jony Ive on projects like the eMate and iMac. That taught him to combine the fields of art, craft and technology. These theories, merged with contemporary culture, make up Meyerhoffer’s design practice today.

PROJECT: ORREFORS

YEAR: 2009

INFORMATION: Sweden being where i came from. I was very excited about this projet. Unforntinately the project leader, an truly amazing person, passed away in the Milan airplane crash that year. I did not want to continue and picked up my glass prototypes and brought them back to California where the value has increased as the memories remain. I will never forget the warmth of the glass ovens and of the people in the deep forest of Sweden.
