Furniture designer Jenny Fingal studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen before she moved back to Sweden and Marstrand where she runs her own studio and workshop. Fingal also runs the company Taste for Waste together with jewelry artist Pernilla Persson and female artisans in Kenya.
Together with interior architect Eva-Johanna Isestig Fingal has driven the project Den som väntar…VADÅ VÄNTA!? (eng. The one who waits…WHAT DO YOU MEAN WAIT!?) from 2015. Together with children and young adults in the age 4-19 they have examined how waiting rooms should been designed to create a safe, fun and interesting place to wait.
One of the results from the project was the sofa DU & JAG (eng. you and me) with two seats on two different levels launched by NC Nordic Care in 2018. If the child sits on the higher seat, they will be on the same level as the adult, but the lower one is easier to climb up to. DU & JAG is made of birch wood with upholstered seat with various loose cushions added.
In 2019-2020 the sofa DU & JAG was a part of the exhibition Female Traces at the Museum of Furniture Studies.
