Torben Kragh Jørgensen, a Danish designer, was educated as an interior designer from Denmark’s School of Design.
“Already during my studies, I discovered the history of the ‘navs’, Scandinavian journeymen, who took their crafts abroad to familiarise themselves with other artisanal traditions and foreign cultures. Deeply fascinated by the philosophy and the approach to life and work they practised already back in the 13th century, I decided to follow in their footsteps. And so, I entered the second - and to me the ultimate and lifelong - education.”
That has, so far, led to a 25-year career within product, interior- and visual merchandising design, where he has lived and worked in Denmark, South Africa, Kenya, China and Singapore.
Torben Kragh Jørgensen is co-founder and co-owner of the brand, NAV Scandinavia, and the company, TJ Squared.
