As one of the leading ladies of Swedish design, Nina Jobs strives for simplicity and a clear-cut relationship to nature. With a background as a graphic designer, Nina studied product design at the Ecole Nationale Supériuere des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. She has also been in charge of design exhibitions which the Swedish Government has shown in Asia and Europe.
Nina Jobs has created a mouth-blown carafe for wine and water, or to be used as a flower vase. The accompanying crystal ball can be used as a stopper, or can nestle at the bottom of the carafe, adding a vibrant touch of colour.
“Barbara got her bouncy, inflated, roundish look from the children’s character Barbapapa. Her sister Fia is taller and more elegant in appearance, but just as playful. They sure are of the same breed.”
