Jenny Nordberg set out to try something new – to make homemade, artisanal furniture but in a mass produced type of way, i.e. super fast. The project, 3 to 5 Minutes – Rapid Handmade Furniture shows Nordberg under pressure crafting each piece of furniture in the span of just 3 to 5 minutes, as the title suggests. Each step in production is timed as she works her way through each project, which includes two easy chairs with extra pillows and a small trolley, all made in under an hour.

Take a look at how it’s done:

Each piece has its imperfections, which results in the goal, which is to show what you come up with with you lack time.
