Jenny is a furniture designer, trained at Denmark's Design School in Copenhagen. Eva-Johanna Isestig is an interior architect and children's culture designer educated at HDK, Gothenburg and COFA, Sidney.

Jenny also runs her own brand Taste for Waste, a collaboration with a jewelry artist and female artisans in Kenya. Born in 1981 in Borås but now living on the west coast with a studio and workshop in Marstrand.

Eva-Johanna was born in 1981 in Jämtland. With a unique design methodology, she creates cultural and care environments for and together with children & young people, from Malmö in the south to Kiruna in the north. In the work with New Queen Silvia's children's and youth hospital in Gothenburg, the idea of ​​an exploratory project about children's own care furniture was formed.

Jenny and Eva-Johanna have run the project "The one who waits...WHAT WAIT!?" for three years. Together with over a hundred children & young people aged 4-19 and participating actors such as NC Nordic Care and the Västra Götaland region, we have investigated how the waiting room can best be designed. The sofa YOU & I is a small part of the result and a piece of the puzzle to create a safe, accessible, fun, interesting and meaningful waiting in the care environment - on children's terms.

Jenny and Eva-Johanna have designed the Du & Jag sofa that emerged from the project What are you waiting for?!
