Siren Elise Wilhelmsen
Siren Elise Wilhelmsen is a Norwegian design student based in Berlin. She wants to make design with personality and humour, products that challenge the meeting between man and his surroundings and that offer a new kind of interaction with them. The mobile seat Parasitz, which you can fasten around a tree, is a product shaped in this spirit. It is the result of testing the limits of the chair, searching for new ways and places to sit. Parasitz was displayed at the DMY-international Design festival Berlin last spring and enjoyed public acclaim and international press reviews. Now the seat is travelling around Europe. She graduated at Universität der Künste Berlin where she is has been involved in internal works; assisting in the organization of projects, doing graphics for catalogues and planning exhibitions. After her diploma she continues working with products that can make people smile.
