I’m a Copenhagen-based independent furniture and product designer. I graduated from the Danish Royal Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture in 2007 and formed my own studio in 2009.

Most of my designs are based upon studies on human behavior. The main objective of my products is to explore and produce beautiful and functional furniture, which addresses the way we live

I try to stay on the innovative side of furniture design, in my studio new furniture categories emerge alongside beautiful and useful objects as a result of continued investigations. I believe that each object has different problems or issues that they are addressing, with unique purpose and intentions.
