Troels Flensted (1987) is educated from Central Saint Martins in London. After graduating in 2014 he moved back to his native Denmark and started his own design studio.
His experimental studio is exploring the potential within material behavior, 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. This approach has led to exiting projects and commissions for both privates and companies.
Since the start of his own studio, his work has been exhibited at some of the most respected design fairs across Europe and he’s been mentioned as ‘one to watch’ by numerous influential design magazines across the world.
