Jongleur & Pixellist
With over 23 years of experience in the global audiovisual industry, Magnus began his journey designing mirrors and optics for large-scale projection systems. Working with architects and designers, he has shaped spaces and places for complex technical systems ranging from projection, LED screens, large auditoriums, virtual reality systems, and even digital scenery for New York’s Radio City Music Hall. Magnus transforms the built environment with pixels of all shapes, sizes, and types.
When Magnus completed school at the age of 16, he hitchhiked around France and Northern Europe. This first trip fueled the fire for Magnus to continue traveling. He visited India when he was 18 years old, worked in France for a while, and a few years ago he took six months of unpaid leave to explore South America, India, and Southeast Asia with his best friend. Traveling allows Magnus to have the rare headspace to reflect on himself and ponder the little things in life.
When a visiting relative left a ukulele at Magnus’ home and said he could keep it, Magnus decided he would learn how to play his first instrument. Magnus claims he’s not that good, but thoroughly enjoys the challenge of following YouTube tutorials whenever he has a few minutes of downtime. Eventually, Magnus’ goal is to sing while playing the ukulele, but the multitasking is proving to be more difficult than expected.
Magnus has an instinctual need to make things. As a kid, he constantly took things apart just to put them back together again. He enjoys the creative process of designing things, even if it’s just in his head. Discovering the unknown journey of the organic design process captivates Magnus. It begins with an idea of something you want to make, you don’t quite know how you’re going to do it, add some research and hard work, and it all falls into place.
