Jenna Kaës is a French product designer, focused on giving shape to mysticism today. Her objects reflect on people’s unconscious, their love, their fears, and how to memorialize death in a contemporary setting. Her work also includes collaborations with companies which utilize traditional artisanal crafts, designing objects which perpetuate arcane techniques. Kaës holds a master degree in design for luxury and craftsmanship from écal (Switzerland).
