Welcome to my website. I am a textile designer experimenting with aesthetics and tactility in order to create new identities and to tell stories. Here are some of my work!
525, Nike employe Pop-up store
9-10 November 2012
For two day's only the creative heads at Nike design open up a pop-up bazar featuring their own personal work. I shared a booth with the lovely Golnaz Armin selling a limited hand made collection of Furry USB's.
I moved across the pond and all the way over to the west coast of America. At the moment I am getting over the culture shock and trying to emerge as smooth as possible. I have discovered wonderful things like sliders and custom service, and to make sure I fit in I take notes while watching Portlandia.
Tilburg Textile Museum presents a young generation of highly promising designers from Europe who are active in the fields of fashion, interior textiles and design. There is a striking interest in the latest scientific developments and consideration for the emotional aspects of fashion and design, which places a greater focus on the material and the surface structure of objects. My graduation project Deviated Evelution was selected for the exhibition, and I am very happy to be featured with this company.
Isn't it good, Norwegian Wood
Over the christmas holidays I visited my parents neighbor Norsk Spon in Norway. They produce wood shingles for houses. It is an old building technique which really appeal to my textile heart, both in the nice structure it creates and also the patina it gets after being exposed to the weather. Since I have never actually built anything in my life I decided to take small steps and build a birdhouse. I must admit that I am very proud of my construction and cant wait to attache my custom made mini-shingles. To be continued...
Danish Elle Magazine have a feature of my furry usb keys in their desember issue.
Hella Jongerius, Misfit
My all time favorite designer Hella Jongerius has a exhibition at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam (13 November 2010 – 13 February 2011. Its a fantastic opportunity to see her work. In association with the exhibition Phaidon has releast a book about her extraordinary career. You can by the book on their webpage . phaidon.co.uk. I was so lucky to work at her studio this summer, and had a great time. But I have to admit I have never been so starstruck in my life :)
Let It Be
The clever people at The freema(i)son has spotted the missing element in the "let it be" photo and made the right connection. It might seem obvious when you see the Beatles cover next to it, but to my surprise not a lot of people made that connection. The photo is from a project Julie Ellegaard of Surplus Wonder and I collaborated on. Something is missing was a photo-essay where we reflected on missing parts in relation to the body .
Deep Sea have been spotted on different inspirational bloggs. You can see it on the lovely Pour Porter webpage and the latest addition at Grizzly Bear Modern. For more information about the project click here.
The Elusive Man
Congratulation to Mille Jensen who won the Designer's Nest award. She just graduated from Kolding School of Design with the fantastic mens wear collection Elusive Man. I collaborated with Mille on some of her knit styles. You can check out her collection here.
Copenhagen Fashion Week
When Copenhagen Fashion Weeks opened yesterday it was for the 45th time. The Golden Fur Pin 2009 styles will be on display in the Bella Center vestibule. So if you are in Copenhagen it is a great opportunity to see my collection Furry Objects close up. The Fashion Week is a hub for fashion industry representatives, and over the years the event has become increasingly international. Every year in February and August, Copenhagen hosts northern Europe’s largest fashion event, and more than 50,000 buyers, designers and reporters visit the many fair and fashion show venues.
