The Kind of Broom project embraces the world of the humble broom. The materials and technologies of today’s functionality-oriented world are the result of centuries of development that has taken place across the globe. A myriad of materials are used, shapes and forms vary immensely, and the production techniques are highly specialised.
My objective has been to delve into this world to form my own proposal of how to create a reformation. By regarding the materials, techniques and shapes from the universe of brooms as a material that I can modulate, my aim has been to create objects that are not merely functional but which provide aesthetic and poetic meaning, aspiring towards the sculptural.

For me to reform is to... Take part in the slow continuous reformation in my field by debating through objects.
Designer Kasper Kjeldgaard (DK) graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design in 2016.
Driven by a desire to create a composition that makes sense in itself, Kjeldgaard continuously pursues to broaden the definition of design through his work. In a poetic universe of balance and suspense Kjeldgaard explores and communicates aspects of nature. Kasper Kjeldgaard’s work has a refined expression with a clear emphasis on craftsmanship. His objects hide nothing, but lay their inner workings bare, available for decoding.
Kjeldgaard’s works have among others been exhibited at Mindcraft in Milano, The Curio – Chart Art Fair and at Patrick Parrish Gallery.
