|Weeds table and chair|
But there was something about his 9,5˚ design that I liked, even though I couldn't quite put my finger on the reason.

After visiting Fex's website and listening to him explain the way he works, I have to admit that I'm a convert.
He explains that his products "are the result of a long, winding conceptual process...developed following the process tool 'Art with function--Design without.'" He said he developed this method to push his thinking outside the box and to propel him along new paths.
In 2005, Fex received a B.A. in Furniture and Spatial Design from the Danish Design School and a M.A. in Furniture in 2009 from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts School of Design.
Nominated in 2012 for the Danish Design Award for his thesis project, the Impact wall seat, Fex was described as a "broad and multifaceted designer" who "moves in the borderland between design and conceptual art," but Fex explains that he has to deconstruct the traditional in order to create something new. He says, "I have to make mistakes, and by doing that, I find new ways of seeing." In 2013 his work was included in three important exhibits.
Even though Fex says he doesn't know what he'll be doing in 20 years, I predict that he has the potential for being remembered much longer than that.
