Jonas Torstensson is a trained industrial designer with a degree from Konstfack in Stockholm. In 1985 he started working with art and design in his own company that went under the name Torstensson Design. A couple of years later, Jonas joined his father, the architect Lars Olof Torstensson. Together they founded the company Torstensson Art & Design AB, which came to accommodate architecture, art and design under one roof.
Environmental awareness and recycling are a common thread though Torstensson’s projects. One of his most popular products is Stumpastaken – a candlestick made of 100% recycled aluminium.
