ABOUT EMELI HÖCKS

Emeli Höcks is a multidisciplinary designer with a deep passion for sustainability, craftsmanship, and material exploration. Holding a Master's degree in Design from HDK in Gothenburg, attained in 2021, Emeli's journey has been driven by a lifelong fascination with nature's wisdom and the urgent need for a more harmonious relationship between humanity and the planet.

She views her design practice as an opportunity to contribute to the transition towards a more sustainable society, inspiring others to rethink conventional approaches to materials and design. She believe that it is the designer's responsibility to continuously explore new and improved methods towards a sustainable future. 

Driven by this ethos, Emeli creates her own materials exclusively from biodegradable and locally sourced waste, such as paper, seaweed, charcoal, coffee, and eggshells. These materials serve various purposes, replacing conventional materials like clay, plastics, metal, and plaster. Through her practice, she aims to challenge the contemporary perception of raw materials and the consumption-driven material culture prevalent today.
