Aviaaja is passionate about creating an overall connection between architecture and design. She's driven by incorporating storytelling in her work - stories that can be based on the specific context, the theme or the issue of the project. This come to live in a subtle and unobtrusive way with focus on aesthetics, form language and natural material combinations.
In January 2019 Aviaaja founded Seven Subjects studio and in September Aviaaja and the studio was awarded ‘Design Talent of the Year’ at Design Awards. The studio works in the intersection between art, crafts and design and is a result of a project Aviaaja has been working on the past years. A project aiming to describe and (re)define Greenlandic crafts and design in a contemporary perspective through historic research, interviews and physical experiments. Since Aviaaja also has a Danish background, which has it’s influences, she’s interested in merging Danish and Greenlandic design traditions and see what happens in this meeting.
Aviaaja do also gives lectures focusing on storytelling, the power a single story can have and about Greenlandic crafts and design. Please send an email if you wish to book her for a lecture.
