About Troels Flensted

Troels Flensted (1987) graduated from Central Saint Martins in London in 2014. In January 2015, he moved back to his native Denmark and founded his experimental design studio in Copenhagen.

Flensted’s studio is exploring the potential within material behaviour, colours and manufacturing processes, and finds inspiration in the aesthetic and undiscovered possibilities deriving from combining the three. His work is often minimalistic in its shape, allowing the materials’ own characteristics to shine.

His studio has been nominated and won several Young Talent awards across Europe including the ‘Talent á la Carte Award’ by Maison&Objet. In April 2017 he received a Bronze Award by ‘A’ Design Award’ for his Poured Collection.

He’s exhibited at some of the most respected design fairs across Europe, including; 100% design, designjunction, London Design Fair, northmodern, Eindhoven Design Week, Stockholm Design Week, Maison&Objet Paris & Milan Design Week.
