From designing guitars for Ben Harper to Nordic Fatherhood | Hans-Jørgen Jahr, Norwegian Designer and Carpenter
Melbourne based Norwegian “Maker of Things”, Hans-Jørgen Jahr, was so inspired by multi-Grammy awarded musician Ben Harper that he decided to start designing guitars. He didn’t know then that Ben Harper would be his first customer. This very talented and soft spoken Nordic designer, carpenter and photographer draws his inspirations from Bauhaus and Nordic designers. Hans talks about his time in the Norwegian army as a pacifist and about his love for outdoors and extreme sports, including ski jumping, snow- and skateboarding.
Hans is a very dedicated father and stepfather. We discuss what it is like to be a Nordic father and how it differs from Australian, based on his experience.
