Design improves life quality
I believe that tactile and aesthetic design build on needs bring joy to people and increase our wellbeing. This is something I truly experienced personally and worked with professionally when collaborating with Danish hospices during my studies.
That's why I strive to create design solutions with empathy for peoples' need and to design sustainable products which have a small environmental impact on the planet. A happy sustainable planet increases everybody’s health and wellbeing in the end. 
With a solid base of Scandinavian design heritage and history I try to experiment and develop something new and contemporary, contributing to an extraordinary everyday life and design worthy to pass on to future generations. My design is often with playful, natural and sculptural elements that talk to our senses and mind, to encourage curiosity and engangement. Design build on empathy and humanistic needs creates prospering atmospheres for us to live in, enhances our wellbeing and increases our potentials enabling us to live joyfully. 
Please write or give me a call if your are interested in some of my designs or a collaboration. I am always looking forward to meeting new people.
