Kind of witty and punk, Jordan Söderberg Mills is an interdisciplinary artist from Ontario, Canada. After attending the Art History at Trinity College at the University of Toronto, and Architecture at the Universidad Diego Portales, in Santiago, Chile, he work as blacksmith apprentice with master sculptor Francisco Gazitua in the foothills of the Andes. He moved later to London for the two years MA in Furniture Design at Central Saint Martins.
That's exactly were our paths crossed, I was at the first year, Jordan was a senior of my course. I will always remember his presentation to our peers (an old tradition of the course, aim to set the standards, and a perpetual anxious/competitive mood, in my case): Jordan showed a 10x25 cm table prototype made exclusively of layered sheets of glass. I don't remember his pitch, that was still not really clear, I just remember that Jordan had a small light.
