About

Troels-Flensted


Product designer from Denmark. My design approach always involves a lot of experimentation with materials, processes and it’s very hands on.

My projects are driven by an interest in materials, alternative manufacturing methods and the aesthetic deriving from this. For me, good design is when unique material properties, intriguing manufacturing techniques and a more down to earth functional approach is investigated and challenged in new and different ways.
